Event Details

Event aim: To bring together key stakeholders to consider How can we support pregnant women and young children to achieve a healthy diet?


This includes how the following welfare food schemes may be improved:

  • Nursery Milk Scheme
  • Healthy Start food and milk vouchers and vitamins coupons

Key questions we will be exploring at the event:

  • How can we raise awareness and understanding about how to achieve a healthy diet?
  • Who can support parents and children to achieve a healthy diet? How can we work together?
  • How can we improve current systems and structures?
  • How can current welfare food schemes be improved?
  • What evidence is available to inform improvements?

Event participants: contributions are welcome from a wide range of public services (health, education, welfare, housing), third sector organisations (community food groups, health and social care alliance, community food and health Scotland, community health exchange, LGBT groups, and ethnic minority groups) and the academic community.


Event outcome: An action plan to undertake evidence gathering, seek wider views and explore potential actions for improving current support.
