Helping families make healthier choices

Play & Skills at Teatime Activities (PASTA) is empowering families with skills and awareness so that healthier lifestyle choices are achievable and centre around the family needs and community environments. Programmes will recognise constraints such as budget, home cooking facilities, food culture, accessibility of food and drink within the local ward/community and practical cooking skill levels. Programmes will have attainable healthy goals.
The programme will increase child and family awareness of how nutritious foods and drink and physical activity can have positive effects on wellbeing, school attainment, emotional wellbeing and general health compared to unhealthier choices which can affect longer term health.

 

What to expect?

During this 6 week family programme, each session children will have time to take part in fun activities and prepare a healthy nutritious meal to take home. Parents, carers or guardians must also attend all sessions.
