Key Discussion Points and Decisions:

  • · Bogdana presented statistics, information and famous support for the issue of obesity in young children. Also brought up was Jamie Oliver’s campaign of a similar nature and his manifesto. Tove also did research into the same topics.
  • · Kavita suggested Alcoholism in youth and provided evidence from the NHS to suggest it was a growing problem, including figures of death and illness.NHS
  • · Joe researched the future of Trent Park Campus but found that a decision had not been made by the authorities on its future. The group decided to leave the matter where it was.
  • · The idea of children and technology was raised and discussed before being suggested as a combination with healthy eating and children. The idea was eventually dismissed as being a little too far gone to tackle.
  • · Jaroslaw suggested the idea of looking into how reading affects children and it’s positives as well as ways to get children being read to.
  • · There was a collective decision to ignore the other ideas mentioned in the week prior and concentrate on the ones discussed this meeting.
  • · The group voted on what topic to campaign for, the winner was Healthy Eating in Schools by a margin of 5 votes to one against the other topics. The member that voted otherwise was happy to campaign for this though.
  • · Decision made to expand the campaign to target parents and educate them too.
  • · All members are to go away and come up with ideas for a ‘campaign message’ as well as research the topic at hand.
