It is well known that health is in large part dependent on diet. Inadequate nutrition causes health issues and fatalities among prisoners; food-related contagions are a regular occurrence in prisons; and prisoners are often overweight or obese due to their poor diet and infrequent physical activity.

In this chapter the barriers to good diets for prisoners and the role of healthcare professionals in maintaining prisoner nutrition are described
