Healthy Kids

Food availability, fast-paced family life, the dominance of the car and the popularity of the electronic screen has dramatically changed the health of this generation of children. Today, only 5% of children are eating the recommended amounts of vegetables, and only one third are undertaking the recommended levels of physical activity.

The Health Promotion Service work with schools, preschools, childcare centres and with families to create opportunities for children to eat healthy food and drinks and to participate in physical activity as part of everyday life.
