The British Nutrition Foundation is a registered charity. It promotes the wellbeing of society through the impartial interpretation and effective dissemination of scientifically based knowledge and advice on the relationship between diet, physical activity and health. It works in partnership with academic and research institutes, the food industry, educators and government. The Foundation influences all in the food chain, government, the professions and the media.
The Foundation runs several scientific conferences each year. These are highly acclaimed, well attended scientific events, usually held in London, with speakers who are among the leading experts in their fields. They are often held in association with other influential organisations and are attended by healthcare professionals, the food industry, academics and research scientists.
With the help of professional teachers and support from the Ministry of Agriculture Fisheries and Foods and the Department of Health, the Foundation has developed a Food and Nutrition programme for use in schools. It is designed to be integrated with the curriculum requirements, particularly those concerned with Science and Design and Technology, and will enable children to acquire sufficient understanding to make sensible, well-informed choices concerning their own diets and lifestyles. The British Nutrition Foundation schools programme, 'Food - a fact of life', spans the whole range of compulsory schooling for children from 5 to 16 years of age.
