Childhood Obesity Programme
Funded by Guy’s and St Thomas’ Charity (GSTC), this five-year programme will work with 80 primary and secondary schools in Lambeth and Southwark. Building on our earlier Healthy Zones programme, we have developed a variety of activities to improve the food on offer throughout the school day. We will consider the needs of each school and offer support accordingly. This will include support to develop and implement food policies and/or to introduce healthier food to after school and breakfast clubs.
