While increasing fruit and vegetable consumption remains a national priority, a new international survey has revealed the extent to which people are not meeting government guidelines on diet and nutrition in the UK.

Current recommendations are that everyone should eat at least 5 portions of a variety of fruit and vegetables each day to reduce the risks of cancer, coronary heart disease and many other chronic diseases. The reality in the UK is that only 11% believe they actually achieve their 5 a day in a week.

The 2010 survey for Herbalife, revealed that 60% claimed their job or lifestyle made it too difficult to eat their 5 a day, despite accepting the benefits of balanced nutrition, while only 24% took nutritional supplements just in case.

While the most recent trends data suggest that women achieve more portions per day than men, this latest survey actually shows that women find it more difficult than men to include the recommended number of portions a day into their diet.

Women are notoriously more prone to stress eating than men and are more likely to develop unhealthy habits such as snacking on high sugar, high fat snacks when they juggle life or work long hours. More women than men blamed the expense of budgeting for 5 a day even though 93% of all women respondents considered the associated health benefits to be important.

But then there was still some confusion about what the government’s recommendations actually constituted. Over 75% incorrectly believed that eating 5 pieces of fruit would qualify. Dinner was considered to be the meal of least importance to both men and women in achieving 5 a day. Snacking was considered to be the most important with over one third seeing it as the most important way of getting their 5 portions a day.

Says Gavin Aley at Herbalife, “It’s clear that with today’s busy lifestyles most people still struggle to achieve their 5-a-day through fruit and vegetables. Real life demands a fast, simple, convenient alternative and that’s where nutritional supplements can help to support a healthy, balanced diet”.

On January 12, a series of earthquakes ranging from magnitude 6.5 to 7.3 struck Haiti in a highly populated area near Port-au-Prince. Widespread damage, collapsed buildings, and an unprecedented number of casualties have been reported. Approximately 3 million people have been affected by this disaster. Power, communications, and access to health care and other necessities continue to plague the people of Haiti as rescue workers search for survivors and help displaced families to find shelter.

Season’s Greetings!

Apologies for my recent absence and the slight delay in responding to some requests – we moved just before Christmas and still have no broadband connection (who would have thought it would take WEEKS to get it set up?!?)

Anyway, it’s business as usual for orders at http://www.sknutrition.co.uk and there will be plenty more blog posts in the new year.

Thanks to everyone who has followed and contributed to the blog in 2009 and please bear with me for a couple more weeks!

lawrence keogh2Here is an email I received today from McCann Erickson:

I thought you and your readers might be interested in some recent work carried out by TV chef Lawrence Keogh from BBC One’s Saturday Kitchen.

Lawrence had to have a kidney transplant at the age of 35, and as a result is now limited to what foods he can consume i.e. minimal amounts of salt, sugar and fat. On the back of this he developed a cookbook especially tailored for people who have or have had problems with their kidneys. The book contains 16 recipes and is available free of charge from renal dieticians and is designed to help people cook meals that are still exciting and flavourful but move away from the quite often dull low phosphate diets that many sufferers have to contend with.

Our aim is to get as many sufferers of CKD that we can to know about the book with the hope of being able to change their lives in some way. I have attached a PDF file of the cookbook ‘Rediscovering Foods and Flavours’ that that should be OK to upload to your blog to allow people to view the recipes without having to make an appointment with their dietician to get a copy of the book. Or you could email it to anyone that would like a copy?

One in 10 people will develop CKD in their lifetimes in the UK alone but with the help of the cookbook we hope that their lives won’t be changed too much.
