Deborah MeadenInterview with Deborah Meaden – 2018 Nourish Awards judge

Why did you decide to become involved and judge the Nourish awards?

“The whole clean eating issue has never been more important for personal health and wider indications for the planet. I thought it was really important to get involved. My position on Dragon’s Den means that I have a voice and should use it.

“I have often talked about the issue of clean eating to friends but my role in helping to judge the Nourish Awards means I can have the chance to support it publicly.”

What does healthy eating mean to you?

“I have not always been the healthiest of eaters. My favourite foods were chocolate, cheese and bread so not necessarily natural, healthy choices, but I firmly believe you are what you eat. I have horses and I have noticed that when they have a problem one of the first things you do is to change their diet. In fact you manage an animals’ health through diet.”
