Infant and Toddler Forum supports National Obesity Awareness Week

Infant & Toddler Forum supports National Obesity Awareness Week, 13th – 19th January

This week is National Obesity Awareness Week 2014. The Infant & Toddler Forum (ITF) is delighted to support this initiative and encourage families to make a new start in 2014 with healthier lifestyle choices.

We know what happens to children in their earliest years is key to health outcomes in adult life. We also know that making lifestyle changes can be a challenge. The Forum encourage a step wise approach to health and wellbeing placing the emphasis on simple, practical advice so that families can take small steps towards better health that are impossible not to achieve.

The ITF’s award-winning Ten Steps for Healthy Toddlers programme provides families with simple, practical tips that help promote good habits for health, growth and development.
