Families with children: case studies

Developing a whole family interest in healthy, affordable food can have a wide impact lasting for generations. Becoming a parent or carer can motivate people to address their own health issues as well as giving a good start for their children, and food is central to this. Community food projects, such as community cafés, food co-ops and cooking and gardening schemes, are great opportunities to learn a wide range of life and wellbeing skills and reduce social isolation.
