Local authorities

The first 1,000 days of a child’s life are crucial for their health. Harnessing this time to help children get into good food habits is a powerful way to help them grow into healthier adults, and to support families in your community to live healthier lives. We can help your local authority:

  • Meet national and local priorities to reduce health inequalities and give every child the best start in life
  • Make sure your local childcare providers are meeting the welfare and nutrition requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage and Ofsted’s new Common Inspection Framework
  • Develop relationships between your health and early years teams
  • Make sure children in your area are getting consistent messages about eating well
  • Empower families to make informed choices about food
