Minister of State for Health Promotion, Catherine Byrne T.D launches Agri Aware’s Incredible Edibles Healthy Eating initiative.
Government is working on ways to help people and communities to improve their health; giving them the knowledge and skills to make healthier choices. The 'Incredible Edibles' programme builds on this objective and is a great way of nurturing a child's interest in what they eat and what it means to have a healthy, balanced diet. This will help to lay the foundations for them to adopt healthy behaviours and habits which will last a lifetime”.
The initiative is supported by the Department of Education and Skills and the Department of Health and Children, through the Healthy Ireland framework, the Department of Agriculture, Bord Bia and the horticulture industry.
