You are warmly invited to attend an exciting virtual panel discussion ‘A UK Fibre Partnership? Making the case for a public-private partnership to increase fibre intake in the UK diet’ organised by academics from the H3 Partnership and Cereal Partners Worldwide (CPW), to celebrate International Whole Grains Day.
The National Diet and Nutrition Survey has shown that the average daily intake of dietary fibre by children and adults in the UK is well below the recommended amount. This is significantly impacting the nation’s health. This event will discuss effective ways of increasing the consumption of wholegrains and high-fibre foods, particularly the role a public-private partnership can play in support of this.
The panel includes:
· Chair – Stephen Hammond MP, former Minister in the Department of Health
· Amy Glass, Diet and Health Policy Manager FDF, who will discuss the industry’s work around fibre
· Gitte Laub Hansen, Project Manager of Physical Activity and Diet at the Danish Cancer Society, who will discuss her involvement in the Danish Whole Grain Partnership
· Member of the Behavioural Insights Team
We will discuss the ways in which policy can promote consumer awareness around the benefits of consuming healthier carbohydrates and fibre, and reach all socio-economic groups. Audience members will consist of a cross-section of policy makers, academics, industry, nutritionists, retailers, and public health groups.
We hope that this event will help to build an alliance to advocate for increased fibre intakes, and would be delighted if you were able to join us. Please RSVP to Olivia Arnold to receive a zoom link: [email protected].
