Eating a well balanced diet is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle.  Combining good nutrition with physical activity can help keep us in good health and prevent a range of diet related illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease and some cancers.

Active Belfast dietitians provide a dietetic and nutrition health promotion service to the community through Active Belfast. They are registered dietitians employed by Belfast Health and Social Care Trust and provide nutrition expertise to Belfast Strategic Partnership. The dietitians are based in the Belfast Health Development Unit and work collaboratively with community, voluntary and statutory sector organisations.

They provide support and nutrition expertise to:

  • Assist community and voluntary organisations to develop, implement and evaluate nutrition health promotion activity through the Active Belfast Grants
  • Support the Healthwise Physical activity referral scheme
  • Assist in the preparation of nutrition resource materials
  • Give talks/lectures to various groups on nutrition related subjects
  • Provide up-to-date nutrition education and advice to professional and non-professional groups.
