The START Campaign Activator will also be present on the day. The START campaign is a five year public health awareness campaign from safefood, the HSE, and Healthy Ireland.

The campaign promotes healthier lifestyles for families with children aged between 6 months and 12 years. It is a campaign created with parents for parents and recognises that making healthier choices is not easy. It encourages parents to make one daily win and stick with it. Parenting is tough but you are tougher.

START staff will be at WELLCOMM and with an active centre for adults and children with quizzes and activities galore and perhaps a prize or 2 for those willing to do some jumping jacks. For those of you willing to start to create a healthier lifestyle for you and your family visit: safefood.eu
