    In today’s debate episode, we’ll be discussing ultra-processed foods. Ultra-processed foods (UPFs) are a hot topic of conversation at the moment, not only in the nutrition world but also in the media – Everything from their definition to whether we should be cutting them out seems to be up for debate. So, following the publication of the British Nutrition Foundation’s position statement and SACN’s position statement on processed foods and health, we’re taking some time to dig into this topic with two experts - the BNF’s Nutrition Communications Manger Bridget Benelam and Registered Dietitian Dr Duane Mellor.

    Duane has a keen interest in helping the people understand the science behind health related claims, so they can make more informed decisions about their own wellbeing. They are experienced in discussing a wide range of health topics across a range of media, from print through to television and radio.

    In conversation with Gousto’s senior nutritionist Ellie Bain

    In today's episode, Corrine is delighted to be chatting to Ellie Bain, senior nutritionist at Gousto, about being a registered dietitian in the food industry.
    Ellie is a registered dietitian working as Senior Nutritionist at Gousto. After studying nutrition and dietetics at King's College London, she always had the intention of working in the food industry, rather than take the clinical route. She is a foodie who loves to cook and is passionate about making it easier for everyone to eat a healthier diet. Ellie started her career at Gousto as an intern, working in the recipe development team, she then became a recipe developer, focusing on healthier recipes and ranges and suggesting tips to make everything a bit healthier too (like reducing salt and adding veg). Now, as health and nutrition has become even more of a focus for Gousto she is full time nutritionist covering everything from nutritional analysis, health claims, PR and comms, reformulation, recipe guidelines and longer term health strategy.

    Alongside her role at Gousto, Ellie is currently studying for a masters in Food Policy at City University and is on the committee of the BDA Industry Specialist Group as social media officer.

    Big Dietetic Debate with The Food Foundation: Do you have to be wealthy to eat well?

    Big Dietetic Debate with The Food Foundation: Do you have to be wealthy to eat well?

    In today’s debate episode we’ll be discussing the question, do you have to be wealthy to eat well? In the midst of the cost of living crisis we’re keen to find out more about the current state of the UK and consider the impact of rising bills and food costs on food insecurity. We’ll also touch on how we as dietitians and nutrition professionals, can help promote a healthier, more sustainable diet, that doesn’t break the bank.
    At the end of June, the Broken Plate Report was published which considers, amongst other things, the affordability of a healthy diet. The figures show that the most deprived fifth of the UK would need to spend a startling 50% of their disposable income on food to have a healthy diet as per the government recommendations.

    To discuss today’s debate question, I’m delighted to welcome two experts in the area. The author of the Broken Plate report and Policy Research Manager at The Food Foundation, Shona Goudie is here alongside the Food Foundation’s Senior Business and Investor Engagement Manager, Rebecca Tobi.

    Rebecca joined the Food Foundation in January 2020, leading on the Peas Please initiative which has obtained pledgers from over 100 organisations and businesses in the UK to sell and serve more vegetables. These days she manages our business and investor engagement team, with oversight of our work engaging food businesses, investors and policy-makers with the need to transition the UK towards a more sustainable and healthy food system. Rebecca is a Registered Nutritionist (RNutr, Public Health) with a background in science communication, joining the Food Foundation from the Nutrition Society. Prior to moving into public health nutrition and obtaining a MSc in Nutrition for Global Health at the London School of Hygiene and Medicine, Rebecca worked in business engagement within the marketing and tech sectors.

    Shona joined the Food Foundation in 2019 and has worked on a range of projects at the Food Foundation including working on policy and evidence for our high profile children’s food campaigns, and consulting on the Government-commissioned National Food Strategy, She currently leads on our dietary inequalities work and food insecurity monitoring. Shona is a Registered Associate Nutritionist with a background in biomedical science and clinical nutrition.

    The Food Foundation charity authored the Broken Plate Report and are on a mission to change food policy and business practice to ensure everyone across the UK can afford and access a healthy and sustainable diet.

    What are the misconceptions about pre-conception and fertility nutrition? With Ro Huntriss, RD

    What are the misconceptions about pre-conception and fertility nutrition? With Ro Huntriss, RD

    In today’s Big Dietetic Debate episode, we’ll be discussing the hot topic of preconception and fertility nutrition. Research has confirmed the importance of prenatal nutrition; the evidence shows that a woman who is healthy at conception is more likely to have a pregnancy without complications. But how much research really is there in this area and is it good quality evidence? I’m sure I won’t be alone in having heard a whole host of thoughts about nutrients to eat and avoid when trying to conceive…Will avoiding caffeine help you get pregnant? Does plant protein actually better support fertility than animal protein? We’ll discuss all this and more in today’s episode.

    To help us answer some of these tough questions and clarify the science behind prenatal nutrition, we’re excited to welcome back to the podcast, Specialist Fertility Dietitian, Ro Huntriss.
    With over ten years of experience in research, academia and clinical practice, Ro is recognized as one of the UK’s leading fertility dietitians, including awards from the British Dietetic Association and CN Magazine for her work around fertility nutrition.
