Eating Well: Children and Adults with Learning Disabilities
Dr Helen Crawley (2007)
These guidelines summarise the current evidence on the nutritional needs of children, young people and adults with learning disabilities in the UK. It looks at issues around nutritional health, food choice and eating well and provides both nutritional and practical guidelines to promote eating well.
This report aims to enable all those who support people with learning disabilities to improve their knowledge about what constitutes good nutritional health, to signpost areas where additional support is urgently required and to highlight other resources and support available in this area.
