SNAPSHOT: An apple a day

Two and three year olds in Birmingham were introduced to healthy eating last week after the Centre for Parents and Children run by the Children's Society in the Wyrley Birch area of the city received a £10,000 grant from Sainsbury's. Five other Children's Society projects received similar healthy-eating grants. "We are thrilled with the gift," said acting project leader Barbara Egan. "It will help us expand our work and create a regular programme of healthy-living activities for local parents and children. We've already held a healthy-eating open day which was a great success." The centre works on the South Kingstanding estate to promote the safety and wellbeing of local families and young people. Services include mother and toddler 'stay and play' sessions, parenting workshops and after-school 'fun day' sessions.
