Healthy Holidays

Healthy Holidays

Since 2018, the Healthy Holidays programme has been providing nutritious food and engaging activities during school holidays for children living in poverty. 

The programme supports families on low incomes or benefits, whose children are eligible for free school meals. It is delivered by Leeds Community Foundation, with support from Leeds City Council and the Department for Education’s Holiday Activities and Food Programme.

How are FoodWise Leeds involved?

FoodWise Leeds has co-produced a Healthy Eating Toolkit to support Healthy Holiday providers embed healthy eating messages and activities throughout their provision. Collaborators include local third sector organisations, schools, community hubs, key food providers, Leeds City Council and Leeds Community Foundation.

This toolkit includes ideas for embedding daily nutritional education, how to involve the wider families and many fantastic examples of provider food activities across Leeds!
