Health initiatives

Chesterfield Borough Council are working on exciting initiatives to promote health and wellbeing within the borough of Chesterfield.

Breastfeeding 'Welcome Here' Award

Food businesses are welcome to sign up to the award, which is free of charge and a simple process.

You can find out more information on the Derbyshire County Council website.

Benefits to your business:

  • free marketing and publicity
  • attracting families by making them feel welcome
  • breastfeeding mums will be likely to return time after time and will spread the word of your award within their own network/community
  • improve customer service and attract new customers
  • help towards positive health effect for babies 

Breastfeeding mums should look out for the businesses that display the Breastfeeding 'Welcome Here' certificate and sticker and know that you are welcome here at this business to breastfeed your baby.

We run various healthy eating sessions with schoolchildren in the community to promote the benefits of a healthy balanced diet.

Activities include:

  • quizzes and competitions
  • healthy food swaps
  • what is a healthy lunch box
  • fruit animals
  • planting fruit and veg at home
