Next month sees the launch of healthy lifestyle campaign Go Golborne’s first themed mini-campaign, 5 A DAY Your Way, with a 5 A DAY 20 Day Challenge! As well as the 20 Day Challenge, the mini-campaign includes a Family Fun Day, a magazine for local families, free grocery bags for life and even its own song!

From 23rd November, children and families will be able to take part in the 5 A DAY 20 Day Challenge. Schools, children’s centres, play centres and other partner organisations across Golborne will be giving out free wallcharts for children, which they can use to track how many portions of fruit and veg they eat each day. The challenge is to get as many 5 A DAY days as possible during the 20 days! Lots of other fun activities and events are being planned across the area to help children with the challenge including cooking sessions, pop-up fruit and veg stalls in school playgrounds and themed rhyme time sessions in the library.

The 5 A DAY Family Fun Day takes place at the Venture Centre on Wornington Road on Saturday 28th November between 12pm and 4pm. It’s free to attend and promises an afternoon of fun and games for all the family that includes live calypso music, healthy cooking demos, arts and crafts, a storytelling zone and lots of activities, games and tasty, healthy food.

Go Golborne, which launched in May, is a local campaign that aims to help families and children in the Golborne area to make healthier choices. 5 A DAY Your Way is the first of six themed mini-campaigns, each focusing on a different aspect of healthy living.
