consistent calorie labelling in the out-ofhome

sector - a focus of Diabetes UK's

Food Upfront Campaign.

Chris Askew, Chief Executive of

Diabetes UK, comments, "Diabetes

UK welcomes the ambitious range of

measures outlined by the Government

in their commitment to tackling the

childhood obesity crisis facing the UK.

These measures - if translated into

legislation and action - have the potential

to transform the health of our nation, and

begin turning the tables on the Type 2

diabetes time bomb we currently sit upon.

In particular, we welcome the proposed

commitment to clear, consistent calorie

labelling in restaurants, cafes and

takeaways. Research tells us that having

this information available helps consumers

make healthier choices, so this could, in

practice, be an incredibly positive step in

the right direction. The challenge now will

be ensuring that the voices of all those

who champion making the healthy choice

the easy choice are listened to and for

these commitments to become a reality."

DRWF Event Co-ordinator Lee Calladine with Diabetes

Specialist Nurses, Liz Houghton (L) and Jan Mitchell (R)

from the West Hampshire Community Diabetes Service.

DRWF

DRWF's 10th annual Diabetes Wellness

Day South took place in Hampshire at the

end of June. The event was supported

by the specialist diabetes teams from

Portsmouth Hospitals and Solent NHS

Trusts, University Hospital Southampton,

the West Hampshire Community Diabetes

Service and the John Pounds Centre

Portsmouth, who facilitated a varied and

exciting programme for the almost 200

delegates who joined us from across the

southern part of the country.

Event Coordinator Lee Calladine said

of the day, "DRWF is aware of the positive

benefits of diabetes education. This day

- and the others like this that we run

around the country ¬-provide the tools,

knowledge and practical skills needed

to inform, inspire and empower people

living with all forms of diabetes and those

that care for them. This event allows

participants to meet with the specialist

healthcare teams and other diabetes

organisations in a supportive and safe

environment with access to the wider

diabetes community. Interaction and the

sharing of personal experiences is always

encouraged and the exhibitors, talks and

workshops help to increase knowledge,

positivity and confidence to live life with

diabetes to the full."
