As a nation, we no longer know how to eat to support our health. We need to reclaim food as the first-line defence in prevention and personal health management.

The BANT Food for your Health campaign has been launched to encourage people to look at their diet with new eyes and adopt a food-first approach to prevent diet-induced chronic illness. The importance of good nutrition, healthy food choices, and supportive lifestyle habits such as regular physical activity, sleep and stress management all combine to give individuals greater autonomy over their health outcomes.
