Through the Healthy Families Initiative, BIG helps to promote healthy and active lifestyles among children under 12 years old by creating a joined up approach to children’s play, healthy eating and physical activity.

As part of the Healthy Families Initiative it will:

  • promote a joined up approach to healthy eating and exercise through community-based projects working with families
  • contribute to the evidence of what works in promoting healthy eating and exercise in children and families
  • foster joined up working on healthy eating and physical activity at local and national levels
  • develop links with children’s play.
