A big part of the work of Healthy Ireland is bringing people together in partnership.  Already, we’ve launched our public awareness campaign to address childhood obesity with safefood.

A high level Cross-Sectoral Group has been established to provide strategic direction and monitor progress.  Click here for more on the group and its work.

Adressing  Childhood Obesity

We have launched a public awareness campaign to address childhood obesity.  It’s targeted at parents and carers of children aged up to 12.

A campaign titled “Let’s Take on Childhood Obesity, One Step at a Time”, developed in partnership between safefood, the HSE and the Department of Health, is continuing throughout 2015 with the purpose of communicating practical solutions for parents to adopt in order to tackle the everyday habits that are associated with excess weight in childhood. The latest phase of the campaign entitled “It’s bedtime” is ongoing at the moment.
