January 11th to 17th is National Obesity Awareness Week. As School Nurses, part of our role is to participate in Public Health Activities to encourage healthy lifestyles and healthier outcomes for Children Young People and their Families in our communities. You can access the School Nurse Service for any support or further information that you may require to achieve this. School Nurses can give advice on healthy food choices, healthy lunchboxes, healthier cooking, increasing exercise and can signpost as required. The North Staffordshire School Nursing Team can be contacted on 07713303644 or please contact your Named School Nurse. Further information can also be found on:
