Promoting the Healthy Start scheme out and about!

Healthy Start Development Worker, Esther has been out and about in Harehills with support from Health Improvement Practitioner at Leeds City Council, Tina. They have been engaging with local retailers, talking about the Healthy Start scheme, and to look out for the new pre-paid card they will see families using to purchase healthy foods for their families. Esther says, ‘Our local retailers were so enthusiastic and supportive of the Healthy Start scheme. They have an important role to play in helping local families access healthy foods. It was great seeing their wonderful fresh produce on display, it really made you want to eat some tasty fruit and veg!’.
