An Impossible Task?

  • The general population faces significant barriers to eating well – as the explosion in the incidence of UK obesity has shown
  • Every group within the population have their own barriers to eating well.
  • Adults with Learning Difficulties are no different – and, as we’ve shown, face even greater problems.
  • It may seem an impossible task but establishing the barriers to change is the first step to success: –
  • Barriers to change
    • knowledge
    • social environment
    • physical
    • chemical
  • If these factors are examined and responded to – all barriers can be overcome!
