It's believed approximately 1.25 million people in the UK have an eating disorder.

People with eating disorders find themselves in a very dark place but the charity Tastelife aims to help them out of that darkness, by providing compassionate knowledge, understanding and tools for recovery.

Founded by Di Archer and Jean Hart, two mums who have both had daughters who had eating disorders in 2014 and now with a growing staff team, Tastelife is committed to changing the story of eating disorders for many sufferers and carers, and providing resources for both recovery and prevention.

 Di Archer is founder and CEO of this small, but growing charity and spoke to Premier's Rachel Matthews about how it began.
