Food Academy was created in 2011 with support of the Medical Research Council Human Nutrition (Cambridge) and has kept a strong research focus ever since. As well as accommodating public health placements and student volunteers from Kings College London (Dietetics Department), we have collaborated closely with Queen Mary University to support some of their large research programmes in relation to diet.
Our goal is to help to bridge the disconnect between high level academic research into public health and employability and the realities of these subjects in the community. By supporting research programmes we hope to monitor the effectiveness of our programmes and continue to learn, adapt and evolve accordingly.
Examples of our research programme include:
- “Effects of Mediterranean Diet on Pregnant Women with Pre-Eclampsia,” ESTEEM study 2014
- “Effects of Simple, Targeted Diet in pregnant Women with Metabolic Risk Factors on Pregnancy Outcomes: with Gestational Diabetes Women” 2017
