Better Health Campaign Resources

The Healthy Steps programme has launched!

The Partnerships Team's free 8-week email programme encourages families to eat better and move more, with budget conscious, easy and practical ideas.

How can you help?

As this is a new email programme, we need your help to spread the word.

Help them get as many families as possible with 5-11 year olds going to to sign up in your local area. To help you support the programme, we have created a range of free and useful resources on our Campaign Resource Centre. Here you will find recipe cards, newsletter copy, a social toolkit and more

How does Healthy Steps work?

Parents/carers can sign up at any time by completing a quiz about their current eating and physical activity habits. Once they’ve completed the quiz they will receive weekly emails on one of these themes, tailored to their quiz results:

  • Reducing sugar
  • Eating 5 a day
  • Meal planning

The content in the emails will then provide families with simple ways to take steps towards healthier behaviours.

As part of the programme, families are set goals or tasks to complete every other week, such as swapping out sugary fizzy drinks, or adding fruit or veg to their breakfasts.

Regular feedback points give families the opportunity to celebrate their successes and continue to make positive changes.

They’ve also created a range of resources for primary schools, including a whole-school assembly, featuring fun quizzes and Healthy Steps quests covering 5 A Day, planned cooking, sugar intake and snacking. Promote these new resources to teachers in your networks with these social media assets.
