People in prison have a higher rate of physical and mental health conditions compared to the general population. The Eatwell guidelines are adopted in the prison setting, which is particularly important given that a diet which does not meet these recommendations has also been linked to higher risk of poor physical and mental health, reduced cognitive function, lower educational outcomes, and reduced productivity. Prisoners are an example of such a vulnerable population. This webinar aims to assess if the nutritional needs of people in prison can be met by menu provision and food choice, and to try and understand if current recommendations are suitable for this vulnerable group.
