FoodWise Leeds launch another brilliant toolkit for the local Healthy Holidays Plus programme.
FoodWise Leeds has been leading the Healthy Holidays Plus programme, in collaboration with key partners, since October 2021. The aim is to support providers to embed healthy eating messages and activities across all Healthy Holidays activities. This toolkit is the latest in a series of successful releases, which have all been coproduced with partners from local third sector organisations, schools, community hubs, key food providers, Leeds City Council and Leeds Community Foundation.
Healthy Holidays Leeds has been running since 2018, providing nutritious food and engaging activities to primary and secondary school-aged children, young people in receipt of free school meals, and children and young people who have Special Education Needs or Disabilities.
Their latest Healthy Eating Toolkit shares ideas for planning healthy eating messages and activities throughout the Easter Healthy Holidays provision, and helps to share nutritional information with families.

Over the Easter break, FoodWise will also be celebrating examples of healthy eating activities from Leeds providers on social media.
