HENRY is 10 years old! We recently marked this major milestone – a decade of supporting parents give their children a healthy, happy start in life – with two exciting and very special events.
Celebrating 10 years of HENRY

Call for a 9pm watershed to protect children from junk food marketing
Obesity Health Alliance is calling for a 9pm watershed to protect children from junk food marketing, plus a ban on brands associated with junk food products sponsoring programmes popular with children. 6 in 10 food adverts during family TV shows push junk food, new study reveals. In the worst case, children were exposed to nine junk food adverts in just 30 minutes.
A Record Year for HENRY
It’s taken a while to get all the data crunched but now that we have we know that 2015-16 was our best ever year for parents reached on the 8 week HENRY programme Healthy Families: Right from the Start with HENRY. A total of 1,857 parents joined a HENRY programme meaning that more than 8,000 parents have now benefited from the programme since we started 9 years ago.
