Safefood Childhood Obesity Campaign

Safefood's Childhood Obesity Campaign, in partnership with the HSE and Healthy Ireland Framework in the Republic of Ireland and the 'Fitter Futures for All' Implementation Plan in Northern Ireland, reminds parents about the negative health impacts of excess weight in childhood and how this can impact on a child's quality of life.

The latest phase of the Childhood Obesity Campaign went live on Monday, 22nd September 2014, focusing on reducing treat foods, encouraging parents to say no to sweets, sugar sweetened beverages, biscuits and crisps every day. For further information in relation to the Campaign please visit the Safefood website www.safefood.eu

The poster Is there more Sugar in this drink than you think? was produced as part of the Campaign. The Dental Health Foundation are pleased to have contributed to its production by way of oral health promotion advice. The poster can be downloaded here
