Food Is Medicine

Posted by We Feed You Author on

An intervention hoping to give Australian doctors a new treatment for type 2 diabetes and to reduce heart disease risk.

We Feed You have been chosen as one of three meal providers of choice to work with the leading independent global medical research institute headquartered in Sydney, Australia - The George Institute for Global Health. The exciting study is looking to tackle type 2 diabetes and heart disease in Australia by using a medically tailored meal (MTM) program. 

Recognised as an established and credible provider of healthy ready meals, We Feed You have developed new meals and adapted existing recipes to meet the specific nutrition criteria provided by the research team.

“We Feed You are super excited to be part of this study. We already have many health professionals who read nutrition labels and recommend our meals to their clients, and many customers enjoying our meals due to their personal dietary requirements. The opportunity to expand our range is fabulous,” says Tracey Emney one of the co-founders at We Feed You.

The meals will be supplied to participants for their main lunch and dinner meals. As the Program Head of Nutrition Science at The George Institute Professor Jason Wu says “We are hoping this Food Is Medicine intervention will give Australian doctors a new and effective way of using diet to manage type 2 diabetes and reduce heart disease risk.”
