Healthy eating sessions to run in Oakham and Uppingham

A group of sessions on healthy eating have been planned in Oakham and Uppingham this week as part of Family Health Week. Topics will include dental health and nutrition amongst.

The scheme is being run by Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust and school nurses will be involved as the organisation looks to educate children who may be making poor decisions with regards to what they eat. Healthy tuckshop snacks in Lincolnshire and Leicestershire will hopefully become that much more popular as a consequence.

Speaking on behalf of Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust, Nicy Turney said:

“We are all very excited about Family Health Week. We have created this special week to provide our workforce with an opportunity to reach out to many diverse communities, to promote our public health role, but also to provide families with important advice and signposting to help them keep themselves and their children healthy.”

In all, 30 workshops will be run over the course of the week at a number of different locations, with other topics including the importance of physical activity, advice about stress management and recommendations on how to cut down or quit smoking.

Sessions will be taking place at Oakham’s Visions children’s centre tomorrow. Further ones will be available at North Luffenham’s St George’s Barracks on Tuesday, in Cottesmore at Kendrew Barracks on Wednesday, at Visions in Oakham again on Thursday, and Uppingham Library on the Friday.
