Abstract

In November 2018, safefood commissioned a research project to understand the nature of food provision in children’s social spaces on the island of Ireland. The aim of this research was to collect data on the types of food and drink available in places where children play and exercise and to gain an understanding of the barriers to and facilitators for making healthy food available in these locations. This report presents research findings and recommends ways to support centre managers, members of catering staff and parents make enable healthier food and drink choices in children’s social spaces.
