Bradford is taking part in a pilot European Campaign to promote positive messages about being healthy and active. The ‘We love eating’ campaign –which will launch in September and run for a year promoting key messages and developing Campaign activities.

We are now recruiting for the first stage of the evaluation . We would like to get the following target groups to fill in an online questionnaire
- Parents of children under 10
- Young people 10 – 16
- Pregnant Women/ New mums with babies under 6 months
- Older people 60+
Everyone who enters will be entered into a draw for £100 and any organisation that supports us will be entered into a draw for £200. Participants will also get a swimming voucher to use at Bradford Council Swimming Pools.
We have an online version of the questionnaire and hard copies which we would like you to get your service users to fill in. Using social media is a great way to get people to engage with the campaign. I would, therefore be extremely grateful if you could follow the links included in this email and like or follow us on Facebook and Twitter and then share the posts relating to the questionnaires. There are 4 posts aimed at the different target groups.
We now have a page on Facebook at www.facebook.com/BradfordWeLoveEating (we will also soon be able to use the European page which all countries have access to).
We also have a twitter account at https://twitter.com/Bradford_WLE
I have attached a social media picture that can be shared, and it would be great if you could circulate this on our behalf. If you want any info then please get in touch!
