Fit & Fed

Plymouth City Council coordinates a city-wide holiday activity and food programme during the Easter, summer and Christmas holidays to primarily support families with children who receive benefit related free school meals.

The programme also offers funded places to Looked After Children, Children with Education, Health Care Plans, Foster Children, Young Carers, children of recognised refugees and children from asylum seeking and Ukrainian families, Children under Child Protection Plans and Children who are Home Educated, who would be eligible for Free School Meals if they were in school.

The Dental Outreach Team take the ‘Open Wide Step Inside’ gang out on tour to the Fit and Fed sessions to introduce parents, carers and children to the importance of brushing well and looking after our mouths.  Families get to take part in a variety of fun ‘Open Wide Step Inside’ themed activities and go home with a brushing pack including a toothbrush and toothpaste.  We are proud to partner Plymouth City Council in this initiative.
