Healthy start

Irish Examiner - Feelgood - - Food -

A NEW health cam­paign aims to help par­ents to make a start at healthy eat­ing by in­tro­duc­ing a sin­gle ‘win’ each day. A ‘win’ can be as sim­ple as eat­ing three pieces of fruit and veg a day, in­stead of two, switch­ing from juice to wa­ter or spend­ing a half hour less in front of the screen. START, the new five-year pub­lic health cam­paign from safe­food, the HSE, and Healthy Ire­land, hopes to tackle child­hood obe­sity — one in four Ir­ish chil­dren is over­weight or obese — and put fam­i­lies on the path to a health­ier fu­ture. For more in­for­ma­tion on the cam­paign, see makeas­t­art.ie
