@AfNutr Chat – #fibrefeb on 19th February

Our second @AfNutr chat will take place on Tuesday 19th February 2019, 8-9pm (GMT).

The theme of our chat will be all things fibre!

Below are six questions that we will discuss during our @AfNutr chat:

Q1: Recent NDNS findings report that we are still not eating enough fibre. Why is fibre important for human/animal health?

Q2: What’s the role of fibre in maintaining a healthy gut microbiota? Does fibre and the type of fibre we eat increase the diversity of gut microbiota?

Q3: Over recent weeks, fibre has been a popular topic in the media. How can we continue to raise the profile of fibre to help increase population intakes?

Q4: What are the potential barriers for children/adults/older adults in meeting their daily fibre intakes?

Q5: How can food innovation help us reach fibre goals? Share any innovative products have you come across

Q6: Share your tips & meal ideas to help boost fibre intakes towards recommendations.

Simply search #AfNutrChat to follow our discussions and participate in them. We look forward to welcoming you to our @AfNutr chat!

We would love to hear from you about what topics you would like to see covered in future chats. It would be great to reflect the diversity of fields that nutritionists work in and to discuss themes which are particularly relevant to nutrition professionals and their practice.
