BNF Healthy Eating Week 2019

14552 BNF Healthy Eating Week Logo 147x147

This week has been the British Nutrition Foundation’s Healthy Eating Week which is a dedicated week in the year to encourage organisations across the UK to focus on healthy eating and drinking, physical activity and celebrate healthy living.

At the heart of BNF Healthy Eating Week are five health challenges:

Have breakfast
Have 5 a day
Drink plenty
Get active
Sleep well

Karren, our Training Manager has sent resources to all head office staff to promote the BNF challenges and has put up posters in our communal kitchen.

The week before we hosted a healthy shared lunch where we were tasked with bringing in a healthy item to share at lunch time.

We hope that the BNF Healthy Eating Week has helped create positive changes in our lifestyles.

Service Users at the core of our in-house training

John has been delivering our in-house Health and Fire Safety training with me for just over a year. He joins me during our Induction Training Programme and this provides a great opportunity for our new starters to see how the people we support are involved in our training.

Over the last year, John’s confidence has really grown. He is also becoming quite an expert on health and safety and really enjoys reading the feedback he receives from the staff who attend the training.

He has also started contributing in our Care Values and Autism Awareness training. During these training sessions, John shares his experience of being on the autism spectrum and is happy to answer questions from our staff. He talks about his busy schedule, his likes and dislikes and he enjoys meeting new staff. John is an avid Peterborough United supporter, so the conversation often turns to how they have done this week!

It is always a pleasure working with John and his presence and contribution to our training is greatly valued.
