Sl?inte was launched in 1996 to provide accessible editorial articles based on the Department of Health & Children?s 1994 health manifesto ?Shaping A Healthier Future?, which aimed to set down a blueprint to improve all areas of the nation?s health ? in particular in the areas of Nutrition, Women?s Health, Children?s Health, Preventative Health, Dental Care, Heart Health, Accident Prevention, and Health in the Over-50s.

So in each issue, our dedicated team provides fascinating, easy-to-read articles about current health topics, along with reports about recent health developments and products, motivating ideas and suggestions, delicious and healthy recipes, and much more.

And we regularly ask leading experts to contribute their knowledge and wisdom by writing for Sl?inte. Recent contributors include:
