Edinburgh Community Food are delighted to receive funding from the Scottish Government’s Oral Health Community Challenge Fund to support families in the local community with nutrition and oral health advice. The Family Smiles project will have the longer-term ambition - in conjunction with other valuable programmes such as Childsmile - to support a reduction in the number of young children having a general anaesthetic for tooth extraction and increase the percentage of population free from carries experience.

Family Smiles will provide a healthy lifestyles programme of cooking and nutrition sessions with families to be delivered in Early Years Centres, HMP Edinburgh Visitor Centre and our own early years groups across Edinburgh. Parents will gain confidence in cooking healthy meals from scratch and understand how to achieve a healthy balanced diet with a focus on improving oral health.

For further information please contact Jo on 0131 467 7326 or [email protected].
