Creating a Culture of Healthy Eating - Drop In Session
The Healthy Lifestyles theme incorporates a range of resources, staff training and interventions around the topic areas of healthy eating and physical activity.
The Healthy Lifestyles theme aims to promote and develop healthy lifestyle choices in the school age population, preventing and reducing the number of children with excess weight across Manchester.
Manchester Healthy Schools is committed to raising awareness about the importance of healthy lifestyles and equipping staff with the knowledge and understanding about a multi-faceted approach to reducing obesity among children and young people.
Training has been developed to support schools to develop healthy eating policies and best practice around encouraging physical activity for all ages.
Our universal training is available for all schools that have completed the Health Check.
Schools that have prioritised Healthy Lifestyles this year will have access to a wider selection of ‘in-house’ training and support to ensure that they are able to make significant progress in this area.
Please find a full list of training available to support Healthy Lifestyles below. Bespoke training for secondary schools and special schools is available on request.

Thank you so much Cassie
Your team's involvement with this project has been amazing
100% of parents who attended said they found the session useful.
Great to have you visit this morning - I think the session was really valuable for the parents who attended and the multi-agency approach worked really well! Thank you so much!
Thank you so much for today's coffee morning and Healthy Schools session.
The parents enjoyed it and were really engaged throughout the session. I know that they have gained from today's session and will hopefully apply their new found knowledge in their homes.
I really appreciated your involvement and interaction with the parents and I am pretty sure that they did too.
Thanks so much for this. The LOs couldn’t sing your praises enough! They are keen to do more work on this so thank you so much. They also said they got some tips for home!
