#MalnutritionMonday 2024

#MalnutritionMonday is a monthly social media activity, held on the last Monday of the month. Established by the Malnutrition and Prevention Network (MAPN), it aims to raise awareness of the risks of malnutrition amongst older people.

It provides ideas and tips that can help older people, families and members of the care community to spot the signs of malnutrition and take action to support those who may be at risk.

The #MalnutritionMonday forum brings together organisations and individuals with interests in food and communities to share good practice, and combine efforts to influence awareness and encourage action on malnutrition. 

You can join the conversation on Twitter by following #MalnutritionMonday - we extend an invitation to organisations with an interest in the prevention of malnutrition to like and retweet – let's spread the message far and wide…
