Play And Skills at Teatime Activities (P.A.S.T.A) is a brand new nationwide scheme aimed at families with children aged between 5-8 years old. 

The scheme will provide after school activities based on promoting healthier eating and physical activity in a fun, interactive and safe environment.

The aim is to empower families with skills and awareness so that healthier lifestyle choices are achievable and will centre around family needs. It will increase families understanding and awareness of the importance of good nutrition and physical activity. The scheme will recognise constraints such as budget, home cooking facilities, food culture and the accessibility of food and drink within the local community. It will encourage people to be positive about what they are actually eating rather than what they are not eating.
