Start4Life, Public Health England’s marketing programme that helps parents-to-be and parents to adopt healthy behaviours, has launched a new interactive ‘Start4Life Breastfeeding Friend’ (BFF) to guide new mums thorough their first weeks of breastfeeding and help them breastfeed successfully by providing personal support for mothers at any time of the day.
Through one-to-one messaging and push notifications, the Start4Life BFF gives mums 24/7 access to expert NHS advice in a friendly, accessible way.
A number of free parenting courses to explore techniques and approaches to leading a healthy family lifestyle are taking place at venues across the city.
The HENRY (Health, Exercise and Nutrition in the Really Young) parenting course, aimed at parents and carers of babies and young children under the age of five, are a unique and highly successful intervention to protect young children from the physical and emotional consequence of obesity.
Graham Stuart joined East Riding Councillor Jane Evison and a group of constituents as he rode on the Holderness Area Rural Transport (HART) bus to celebrate its achievements and promote its bid to become a registered NHS non-emergency patient transport provider in 2017.
Founded in 2003 to tackle transport needs in Holderness, HART has gone from strength to strength and now has nine vehicles covering the coast from Bempton to Spurn including the market towns of Driffield, Hedon, Withernsea and Hornsea.
