Eating and nutrition
Eating well, drinking enough water, eating opportunities in Dorset and Dorset's Nutritional Care Strategy for Adults.
Not eating and drinking properly is a major cause of ill-health in the UK and Dorset, particularly among the elderly. In the UK, general malnutrition affects nearly a quarter of people under 65 and a third of people over 65. Through Dorset's Nutritional Care Strategy, (pdf, 376kb) (opens in a new window) we are working with partners to reduce the incidence of malnutrition and dehydration in Dorset.
These pages have information about the strategy as well as practical advice on eating well and ensuring you drink enough water.
