Oral health, healthy eating and physical activity were celebrated at a Community Dental Services CIC Healthy Under 5s award ceremony at Lakeview Village Hall in Wixams last month.

The Healthy Under 5s programme has been running for 17 years and is a public health initiative for early years settings, pre-schools, nurseries and children’s centres.

During this time, more than 10,000 children and their families have benefitted from support and advice to improve oral health, healthy eating and physical activity.

Delegates at this year’s ceremony enjoyed an array of assorted food platters and mocktails.
