I’ve been busy recently doing lots of filming – mainly for different programmes for the BBC.
BBC TV show
At the beginning of the year I was on Food: Truth Or Scare talking about sweeteners and their use in products around the UK. For the last three years I’ve worked really closely with the Food: Truth or Scare (FTOS) team on and off screen. Sometimes I’m working on research for the programmes, advising them on storylines. Sometimes I’m filming in locations around the UK and other times I’m fact checking their scripts.
I’m genuinely very proud to be working on this show as their main aim is to get behind the headlines that we read every day and help to show members of the public what the evidence really says. The FTOS team mainly work with Registered Dietitians and Registered Nutritionists as well as other medical experts to get to the bottom of the stories, which is another reason why I’m so proud to work with this team.
If you’ve never seen the show, you can find out a little more about it here: Food: Truth or Scare. You can also try some of their recipes that are recommended on screen too.
BBC News live
In January I also appeared on BBC world news, talking about a fabulous project by Gregg Segal where he took photos of children surrounded by a week’s worth of their food. You can read more about this incredible and eye opening project here, and you can also see me talking about it on BBC World News here too:
Interestingly the presenter wanted me to talk a little more about fussy eating than childhood obesity, and so I talked about how important it is to look at eating habits over a week, as well as the importance of adding fruits and veggies into your diet and cooking from scratch.
BBC online video
I’m also due to be on a new BBC online series which looks at tips, recipes and dietary advice to help people to improve their diet. I can’t share too much about this yet but hopefully you’ll be able to see the videos up on BBC Food website in April. Keep your eyes peeled!
