Food Academy was created in 2011 with support of the Medical Research Council, Human Nutrition Cambridge and has kept a strong research focus.
Our goal is to help to bridge the disconnect between high level academic research into public health and employability and the complex realities in the community.
Food Academy’s research is in public health and the effectiveness of our programmes is supported by formal public health placements and student volunteers from Kings College London.
Food Academy also collaborates closely with Queen Mary University in some of their large research programmes in relation to diet:
- “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
