Healthy Eating

Healthy Active Little Ones (HALO)

This free programme helps early years settings to:

  • reflect upon their practice in a range of health and wellbeing areas
  • celebrate and strengthen what they already do
  • identify (and action) areas for further development.

Alongside dedicated coordinator support, settings can access:

  • training on a range of health and wellbeing topics
  • in-house training and practical support (such as modelling or menu planning)
  • downloadable resources.

Settings can also apply for one of two new awards: the HALO Award or the HALO Excellence Award. These recognise:

  • commitment to support the health and wellbeing of children, staff and families as part of a whole-setting approach
  • continued improvement and the embedding of best health and wellbeing practice.

The content and resources in this section relate to the HALO programme. They are for early years settings, including school nurseries and childminders. To find out more or sign up, please email us: [email protected]
