Herts SU: Nutrition & Dietetics Society


Hey everyone,

I'm not sure if this is allowed on here but thought I'd give it a shot!

I'm transferring into Hertfordshire's dietetics course into year 2 and thought it would be nice to know some people before I arrive! I feel like a kit transferring schools!

Look forward to joining the society properly and meeting some of you!


We have an awesome proposition for you. As previous students we know how difficult it is to organise merchandise for your members. We at artszn hope to take this hassle away from you. As a society we are sure you would like to have your members wearing your apparel/garments to represent the society.

It will be great for you guys, you will be able to setup your very own store in minutes and upload apparel which members can purchase as any other online retailer.

I have attached a presentation and flyer (to repost) and for further information.
Feel free to give me a call on 07375664570 or email me [email protected].
Looking forward to hearing back from you soon.

Thank God it’s Friday Drinks 🥛☕️🍺🍸🥂🍾🧉

This is the last weekday of celebrating and we wanted to end it on a high.

Get involved in our zoom call from 5pm-5.30pm to discuss all things combating dehydration.

We will have our lovely N**S chair , with co-host having open discussion with everyone on the call about common drinks from their cultural backgrounds that could be used to prevent dehydration and promote optimum health for malnourished individuals.

Get your chai ☕️ , Taiwanese Teas, Irish ☘️ whiskey 🥃 at the ready!!

We will also be having a small reflection talk at the end on how successful the week has been and what advice, initiatives we are going to take forward in futures practice. It will be lots of fun! Not to be missed!!!

3️⃣ Take a selfie or get someone to take a photo of you holding your suggestions.
4️⃣ If you are posting on Instagram please tag us . On Twitter please tag & , and on Facebook tag . Use hashtags , and

Thumbs up for Thursday!

As we continue to celebrate we have got some amazing cooking sessions in the diet lab. Some of our volunteers are going to transform into chefs 👩🏽‍🍳 for the day as they cook up some foods from across the globe 🌎.
Not everyone that lives in the UK was necessary born here, thats why we want to celebrate and highlight different cultures and the foods they might eat to combat malnutrition. Were your grandparents from a different country? Do they have a recipe they swear by? Why not share it with us the comment section below ⤵️

A common misconception is if a dish/food item is high in calories that it isn’t hEaLThY. This really might not be the case for different population groups. Some of our dietitians treatment as part of their assessment is prescribing cake 🧁! Remember with dietary advice it always depends!

We will be posting videos from the day, so stay tuned for UoH’s very own MasterChef!


Day 2 of

Let’s spin theNutrition Wheel!!
The nutrition wheel is a wipeable tool designed for use by volunteers, carers and care workers working with older people.

“malnutrition with a cultural twist”
