  • This manual aims to familiarise readers with the general details of the diets of the main Asian groups in Britain, that is, people from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, and of Indian and Pakistani origin from East Africa. It outlines religious and cultural aspects of food; the basic diets of the different Asian groups in their areas of origin; some of the settlements in Britain; and discusses particular times when diet may be crucial, such as during and after pregnancy; during infancy; and in hospital. It is aimed at trainers and tutors of health workers, and at those health workers who themselves have a special interest in the subject. Most of the information in the pack applies to people who came to Britain in their teens or as adults.
