Promoting Good Nutrition

Welcome to Promoting Good Nutrition. This digital resource aims to support social care workers better understand what good nutrition is and how to support individuals who may be at risk of malnutrition.


This digital learning resource has been developed by the NI Social Care Council in partnership with social care employers (BHSCT, NHSCT and SEHSCT) and the Northern Trust led Regional Prescribing Support Dietetic Team to support the Domiciliary Care Transformation (Confidence and Supply Fund) Project and DoH, Promoting Good Nutrition Strategy.

As a social care worker you play a very important role as you may be the first person to notice when a person is not getting all the food they need to stay healthy. This resource aims to provide information about what a nutritious diet is and what to do if you suspect someone may be at risk of malnutrition because they are not getting enough food to stay healthy.
