In November 2022, the UAE launched its National Nutrition Strategy 2022-2030. This strategy focuses on offering a healthy lifestyle to all residents of the country. It does this by providing nutrition education, ensuring that people have access to nutritious foods, and promoting physical activity.
At the360mix, we are aligned with these strategic targets in many ways. Let’s take a look at how our product is helping individuals achieve their nutrition goals.
What is the national strategic plan for nutrition in the UAE?
The plan consists of 5 strategic approaches:
- Sustainable, resilient food systems for healthy diets
- Aligned health systems providing universal coverage of essential nutrition actions
- Social protection and nutrition education
- Safe and supportive environments for nutrition at all ages
- Strengthened nutrition governance and accountability
How does the360mix align with the UAE's National Nutrition Strategy 2030?
Offering sustainable snack boxes for healthy diets
At the360mix, we strive to offer nutrition that is tailored to each individual's needs and lifestyle. Our boxes come with snacks in a variety of sizes, shapes, flavors, and nutrition profiles. This makes it easy to find something that fits everyone's nutrition goals.
All snacks are free from artificial colors, nasty chemicals and trans fats. Earlier this year, the World Health Organisation took aim at trans fats. They stated that trans fats created "huge health risks" and caused half a million deaths a year from coronary heart disease.
"Put simply, trans fat is a toxic chemical that kills, and should have no place in food. It’s time to get rid of it once and for all," said the organisation's director general, Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, in a statement.
Furthermore, we offer options for people who follow vegan diets or have allergies such as gluten intolerance. With so many options available, everyone can find something that fits their dietary needs. In addition, all of the boxes are customizable to avoid any potential allergens or ingredients that people may be intolerant to.
Offering nutrition education
It is not enough to simply provide access to healthy snacks. It is also important to educate people about nutrition. This way, they can make informed choices when choosing what types of food and snacks they should be eating.
We offer nutrition education straight from our functional nutritionist. Our blogpost about How To Read Snack Nutrition Labels, for example, helps people understand nutrition labelling. It helps them become more aware of what ingredients are included in different types of snacks. Additionally, it educates them on how those ingredients affect their overall health.
Providing nutrition for all ages
At the360mix, we understand that different age groups and lifestyles require different nutritional needs and we strive to meet those needs through our snack boxes. We offer tailored solutions for pregnant women, children, gym enthusiasts, vegans etc. We do this so everyone can get access to nutritious food regardless of their age or lifestyle factors.
Moreover, during Ramadan we provide special packages with dates and nuts that help break fasts without compromising on taste or quality.
Following an advanced food strategy
We understand that in order for us to properly align ourselves with the UAE’s National Nutrition Strategy 2022-2030, we must be careful about what kinds of food products we include in our snack boxes.
This is why our functional nutritionist put an advanced food strategy in place where only healthy snacks are included based on a strict set of criteria, such as FDA regulations and sugar content levels per serving size etc. This allows us to ensure that our customers are getting the best possible snacks while still helping them achieve their nutritional goals.
