Healthy Eating Booklet
Lockdown has been very challenging for children and young people, one study has shown that there has been a 40% increase in snacking. Unfortunately the foods most often chosen for snack are high in sugar and fat.
Barnet Council have provided a child friendly online booklet that contains info about healthy eating, healthy snacking, physical activity and sleep. Research shows that teaching children the food groups is a good foundation for learning about nutrition and developing healthy habits. Please encourage them to read this booklet, or go through it with younger children.
The booklet is available here and is brought to you by Barnet Public Health and a local Public Health Nutritionist, Yinka Thomas.
