  • They will also be offering tips on reading and understanding food labels

Quotations

Malcolm Grinstead, Contract Manager for Peterlee Leisure Centre, comments:

The Healthy Challenge will help people to understand how to make considered and sustainable lifestyle changes in a way that is fun, engaging and informative. We hope that people will take the chance to get together in the name of improved health!
