Promoting Healthy Eating and Greater Physical Activity Among BME Groups (2009-2010)

HP – MOS is lunching a project – Promoting Healthy Eating and Greater Physical Activity among Black and Minority Ethnic Groups


  • The main objective of the project is to provide a framework for a comprehensive Healthier lifestyle program for Black and Minority Ethnic At Risk-communities to
    address general and particular concerns of food nutritional contents, effective physical activities with a focus on health and well-being
  • Being overweight can contribute or lead to a range of health conditions, such as heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, indigestion and some cancers. Obesity levels are becoming an increasing issue for BME groups, as greater numbers of people put on extra weight, through poor diet or insufficient exercise
  • The project in particular will focus on structured self-help activities to offer BME groups the opportunity to combine advice on nutrition and physical activity with
    behaviour change techniques with the support of others in the same position to manage their weight concerns
  • The project activities include a dietician and an exercise specialist to design nutritional information and physical activities to produce interactive DVD as a tool for
    promoting healthy eating in supporting Black and Ethnic Minority beneficiaries in communities.
This project has been funded by AWARDS FOR ALL
