Welcome to the website of the NNEdPro Global Centre for Nutrition and Health. We are anchored in Cambridge (UK), providing a global gateway to the improvement of human health and healthcare through nutrition education and related research.
The Need for Nutrition Education/Innovation Programme (NNEdPro) is a knowledge management group with a translational/policy-relevant ethos, which recently won the 2015 UK Complete Nutrition Outstanding Achievement Award. NNEdPro originally starting with a pilot project (2009) to deliver and evaluate a novel nutrition education intervention for medical students from 15 UK medical schools. The NNEdPro Group now works on a number of themes across clinical and public health nutrition, both within and across borders.

NNEdPro seeking to raise funds to establish a health promotion Teaching Kitchen for an urban slum in Kolkata (India). This will build capacity and support mothers with limited resources to achieve the best nutrition for their children.
The kitchen will also serve as a community hub for:
– Malnutrition screening / prevention
– Health promotion
– Disease prevention
We also intend to evaluate the health impact of the kitchen so that successes from this model can be rolled out to other parts of the subcontinent. Your support can potentially change lives by giving underprivileged yet resilient mothers and their children a better tomorrow!

NNEdPro along with Mudra Dance Academy hosted ‘An Indian Summer’ on Saturday 30th July 2016 from 6-10pm at Wolfson College, University of Cambridge. With your generous support we managed to raise over £3500 for two health projects in India.
Organised by the NNEdPro, Physicians United for Child Health (PUNCH) and Mudra Academy of Performing Arts UK, ‘An Indian Summer’ was an evening of entertainment in aid of nutrition and health projects in India. All proceeds go towards a nutrition education project and the building of a nutrition education kitchen in the Urban Slums of Kolkata, as well as essential paediatric equipment for the Institute of Child Health in Chennai.
