3 Identifying a health promotion intervention

In Session 6, in the video ‘Practitioners’ perspectives of using the toolkit’, Karen described how she used the information she gathered from using Steps 1, 2 and 3 of the Toolkit to learn more about a focus for a health promotion activity. Karen considered the comments and feedback from parents about their concerns about healthy eating. She had consulted her colleagues’ views too, and they had expressed their concerns about the content of some of the food provided for children’s packed lunches. Therefore, the staff decided that they wanted to plan a health education campaign aimed at improving parents’ knowledge about healthy eating and drinking.

The following sections looks at some of the resources Karen created to help promote the healthy eating messages.
