Since 2015, EFAD has been dedicated to promoting Healthy Hydration awareness as an integral part of its work. In collaboration with experts in the field, EFAD has launched the European Healthy Hydration Awareness Campaign (EuHHAC). The primary objective of EuHHAC is to enhance knowledge and awareness of healthy hydration among health professionals and dietitians. The EuHHAC project has resulted in the development of a user-friendly tool for dietitians that aims to increase their understanding of healthy hydration and to support them in optimizing this topic in client engagements. The tool has now been translated into a number of languages. Additionally, a Healthy Hydration course has been created to educate dietitians on the importance of healthy hydration and embedded in the EFAD Learning Platform. This session relays the outcomes and future steps of the project and provides information on how to optimize healthy hydration in European Countries.

The EFAD Breakfast Toolkit Project was launched with the purpose of translating nutrient recommendations for breakfast into practical advice for individuals and health professionals. EFAD leads the project and collaborates with two research teams from Austria and Spain, to develop a toolkit for dietitians to educate patients on how to build a healthy breakfast based on the International Breakfast Research Initiative (IBRI) Europe breakfast recommendations.

Despite the existence of nutritional recommendations and legal requirements to disclose nutrient values and breakfast habits, they appear insufficient to address all needs. In 2023, EFAD conducted an online survey to assess the experience and resources of dietitians when recommending breakfast as part of a balanced diet in their specific settings. Furthermore, existing educational materials from different European countries have been collected, as well as national recommendations regarding breakfast. Over 300 dietitians from 27 countries participated in the survey. During the presentation, one of the speakers will share the results of the breakfast survey and analyse the outcomes in terms of cultural aspects as well as the perceive importance of breakfast. The results from the survey indicate that educational materials focused on breakfast are scarce and would be appreciated by dietetics practitioners. Breakfast printed infographics and recommendations are the most valued tools (39%), followed by examples of healthy recipes and menus (21%). Thus, common evidence-based dietary guidelines and educational materials will help dietitians work in implementing healthy breakfast habits in the European population by regarding cultural and sustainable aspects. EFAD has been developing a Breakfast Toolkit to assist dietitians in improving their clients’ breakfast habits. During the event, the final speaker will demonstrate how the tool can be effectively implemented in their daily practice.
