With around 3 million people at risk of malnutrition in the UK, Bluebird Care (Hillingdon) believe raising awareness of the risks associated with poor nutrition and hydration and promoting good practice can help to reduce the number of people at risk.
Some of the key signs of malnutrition include weak muscles, feeling tired all the time and a low mood. The NHS suggest eating a healthy, balanced diet including plenty of fruit and vegetables, plenty of bread, rice and other starchy foods, some milk and dairy foods and some meat, fish and other non-dairy sources of protein.
