You will soon be able to put your lab coat on and have a look round our science lab but for now, have a read of our latest articles.
The latest articles designed to help support a healthy lifestyle.
The term ‘Omega‑3’ might sound like it belongs in sci-fi movie, but Omega-3s are polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs). The term Omega‑3 describes the structure (for those interested, its due to the presence of a double bond three atoms away from the terminal methyl group. OK, I’ll get back to the lab!). Omega-3s are essential for our health.
A varied, nutritionally balanced diet is essential for our overall health, both as children and adults. There is lots of guidance on children’s nutrition across the internet. The Food Standards Agency’s EatWell Plate is a good visual reminder of how your child’s daily diet should look, over 5 years old, with the right nutrients.

Public Health England has revised its guidelines to recommend that most people take a Vitamin D supplement, after discovering most of us aren’t getting enough Vitamin D. We asked Chris Smith, co-founder of Vegetology and resident science geek, to give us the lowdown on Vitamin D. Why is it so important, why are we not getting enough and what can we do to change that?
