Research carried out to inform the current phase of the START campaign highlights that while parents and guardians are interested to reduce the amount of treat foods, like crisps, chocolate, biscuits, their children are consuming, they often find it difficult. These type of foods are the 2nd most consumed food group by children. The Food for Life guidelines say that these type of foods are not needed and recommend that when consumed it should be ‘very little, and not every day’.
To help parents make a start to reducing treats we are hosting a START webinar with nutrition, health and parenting experts on Thursday 25th November at 7:30pm.
Please find the invitation to the webinar below. You’ll find further information and registration details by clicking here
We look forward to you joining us on 25th. Do share this invitation with colleagues and parents within your networks.
