During the half term holiday children in Bradford will be encouraged to eat healthy and adopt a healthy lifestyle.

imagesThe Good Food Advice Stall in the Oastler Market on Friday 20 February between 11.00am – 2.00pm, will include food-based activities for children and parents including making your own smoothies on our pedal powered smoothie bike and a machine that finds out how clean your hands really are.

There will also be an opportunity to watch cookery demonstrations by Jamie’s Ministry of Food and sample some healthy and tasty food.

Cllr Val Slater said: “What better way to enjoy the half term than by taking part in these activities inside the market and learning how best to enjoy food in a healthy way at the same time.”

“It’s not just for the children. Parents also need to understand how making a few simple changes to the family’s lifestyle can benefit everyone.”

“Learning how to avoid hidden sugars and fats and exercising a little bit more can make a significant difference to their and their family’s health.”
