Healthy Steps programme

A free email programme encouraging families to eat better and move more.

The Healthy Steps programme has launched and families in Nottinghamshire are being encouraged to sign up.

The free 8-week email programme encourages families to eat better and move more, with budget conscious, easy and practical ideas.

It aims to get as many families as possible with 5-11 year olds to sign up in the local area.

Parents and carers can sign up at any time by completing a quiz about their current eating and physical activity habits.

Once they have completed the quiz they will receive weekly emails on one of these themes, tailored to their quiz results:

  • Reducing sugar
  • Eating 5 a day
  • Meal planning

The content in the emails will then provide families with simple ways to take steps towards healthier behaviours.

As part of the programme, families are set goals or tasks to complete every other week, such as swapping out sugary fizzy drinks, or adding fruit or veg to their breakfasts.

Regular feedback points give families the opportunity to celebrate their successes and continue to make positive changes.
