Jenny works across the Jamie Oliver Group to implement nutrition standards and is particularly passionate about improving the food environment through policy change. She is part of the Expert Advisory Group for Bite Back 2030, a youth-led movement calling for a food system that puts children's health first.

Jenny's Instagram Jenny's Website NOTE: THERE WAS A SLIGHT ISSUE WITH MY AUDIO NEAR AT THE START OF THE PODCAST. THIS ONLY LASTS FOR A FEW MINUTES BUT I APOLOGISE FOR THE POOR QUALITY. In this episode we cover: Jenny's background in nutrition and her experience in behaviour change programs and food policy The importance of understanding people's background and barriers when working in food policy change Learning that not everyone's situation is the same and how that greatly affects food choices What is the food environment and how does it affect nutrition How the food industry shapes our palate and therefore our food decisions The reasons ultraprocessed foods are so commonly marketed The triple challenge of undernourishment, hidden hunger and obesity Why government food policies are needed to level the economic playing field for industry so they will comply with changes The success of the "Sugar-Tax" in the UK and how it has reduced sugar intake from soft drinks Is there a backlash from people who don't want a nanny state changing their favourite foods? How industry reformulations due to new government policies have reduced sugar and salt intake without needing the consumers to make any changes. The role of marketing in influencing people's food decisions The incredible complexity of societal, economic, psychological and biological factors that go into food choice The dissonance between the foods/diets promoted on social media and what some people actually have access to The reality of food insecurity during lockdown and how it is very unequally experienced by different socioeconomic groups What is holiday hunger experienced by some children when they aren't in school What are some of the most important issues that the government needs to deal with regarding food policy Why systemic changes are just as important as public education/awareness campaigns

Her most recent role is as Head of Nutrition at Jamie Oliver where she oversees the nutritional aspects of his recipes, restaurants and his campaigns. Jenny has worked with us on The Model Method Online and she really is an advocate of a balanced approach to nutrition rather than seeing certain foods as the enemy.
