Obesity is arguably one of the most pressing public health challenges we face in the UK. The statistcs of our childhood population is a significant concern as it's a strong predictor of adult obesity.
It is one of the most unmet challenges in our society, with 1 in every 5 children leaving primary school obese.
Very little is in place for preventing and controlling obesity in our schools. The prevalence and increasing rates of obesity, are not spread equally across society, and there is a strong systemic relationship between obesity and deprivation.
Felicitous Foodology can help to meet this unmet need with our School-Based Intervention programme, aimed at years 5 and 6, into primary schools in the UK especially those that have high levels of obesity.
In 2014 government policy made it compulsory for cooking and food education in the national curriculum, with no specific intervention programme. We understand primary schools do not have the time or capacity to implement another subject into their already full curriculum.
Our programme has removed the time restraints of this problem because the programme fits into existing lessons. We also understand teachers additional pain points and the programme provides a seamless and effective, educational experience.
Studies show proven results for school nutritional programmes working with schools in partnerships co-ordinating action and helping to take coherent approaches to solve this problem.
Our mission is to reduce childhood obesity statistics in our schools and community, by implementing solutions that puts a child's health and wellbeing at the centre of everything we do.
Ensuring future generations live life well.
