A couple of years ago, I undertook a research project for Footprint Media Group which aimed to work out why chefs didn’t have much nutritional knowledge. The reason was fairly simple: It’s not taught. So this became the title of my report: It’s not taught: why chefs don’t consider nutrition, and how to get nutritional education onto the syllabus and into the kitchen.

The report, which was sponsored by Nestle Professional, aimed to identify how to improve nutritional education in catering colleges and industry to improve public health and meet customer demand for healthier options.

With the continued support of Nestle Professional, I’m thrilled to announce that Footprint are now able to continue the project and to start putting the report’s recommendations into action. A vital step when 63% of the UK adult population is overweight or obese, and we eat 1 in 6 meals out of home. Watch out for updates on http://www.footprint.digital later this Spring.
