Care caterers are being urged to get involved in Nutrition and Hydration Week, which takes place from March 13 – 19.

Originally a collaboration between the Hospital Caterers Association, NACC and the Patient Safety Domain NHS England, the week has now become a truly global event with a life of its own.

The date for the Nutrition and Hydration Week Global Tea Party for 2017 will be March 15 and organisers are encouraging care cooks to put on afternoon tea in health and social care settings to show how to improve nutritional intake.

If you are having a tea party during Nutrition and Hydration Week 2017, please tweet photos @NHWeek and use the hashtag #NHW2017. For more information visit
