CHILDREN in Gwynedd and Anglesey are benefitting from better nutrition after the introduction of a scheme educating them on the importance of healthy eating.

Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board’s healthy and sustainable pre-school team is providing nutrition education for those who look after pre-school children in order to achieve the ‘Tiny Tums’ best practice award. The health board’s specialist dietitian, Iona Jones, said: “We are now keen to encourage more staff members working in playgroups who have not yet been awarded the ‘Tiny Tums’ award in both Gwynedd and Anglesey to attend the training sessions on healthy eating for pre-school children delivered by the dietitians.”
