Description:

The Irish Heart Foundation and the National Youth Council of Ireland formed a partnership to develop a Healthy Eating, Active Living resource for the Youth Sector, through the sharing of expertise and information. Initial research was carried out to assess what resources and support were available to youth workers, and following this, the Irish Heart Foundation and the National Youth Council of Ireland conducted a series of focus groups throughout Ireland. The focus groups explored the areas of healthy eating and active living among workers and young people in each of the youth organisations and identified key areas to be addressed in this resource.

This resource aims to equip youth workers with the skills necessary to create a healthy eating, active living environment in their organisation by providing information on health education, healthy eating, active living, policy guidelines and key contact information.
