The impact of COVID-19 on children’s nutrition - Q&A session 

This event has now passed.

The event

Evidence shows that many children in the UK aren't receiving adequate nutrition, sleep or exercise and their health, well-being and educational engagement are suffering as a result. The COVID-19 pandemic has further compounded these issues. So what can we do to tackle the problem and ensure better outcomes for UK children?

Join Dr Meesha Warmington in this live Q&A session exploring child health and well-being issues in the UK, and how they have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Dr Warmington will conclude the discussion with recommendations on the interventions and support that should be made available to children, families and schools dealing with these issues.
