“Water – the forgotten nutrient. What do dietitians know?”

organized by the EFAD working group

‘European Healthy Hydration Awareness Campaign’

23rd May 2017

19.00 CEST


Dear colleague dietitian or student,

Drinking water is as normal as brushing your teeth and tying your shoelaces; but what do we really know about the relationship between health and hydration?

In 2016 EFAD initiated the European Healthy Hydration Awareness Campaign (EuHHAC). This project aims to seize the opportunity to promote healthy hydration in the current food ‘climate’; expressed in the Food and Nutrition Action Plan (FNAP) and complemented in the EFAD European Dietetic Action Plan (EuDAP).

With this webinar EuHHAC want to create awareness among dietitians on healthy hydration. Water is essential to health, but is a macronutrient that is often overlooked.

The last decades the impact of water drinking on human health is studied often and thoroughly. This resulted in convincing evidence that optimal water consumption adds to daily and long-term health.

In the EuHHAC webinar ‘Water; the forgotten nutrient’ you will learn the basics on the role of water in our body and discover the convincing evidence on the role water plays in the prevention of chronic diseases. In content of the webinar will be related to the current state of knowledge on healthy hydration among dietitians and discuss the steps to a hydration action plan.

The webinar will be presented by Pauline Douglas, dietitian

Senior lecturer/clinical dietetics facilitator Ulster University, Northern Ireland

Fellow of the British Dietetic Association

Member of the EFAD Executive Committee and the EuHHAC working group
