Project Proposal

Background:

The ‘Healthy Incentive for Pre-schools’ (HIP) project is an ongoing child care intervention in the midlands which aims to evaluate pre-schools’ progress through an incentive scheme to improve pre-school nutrition practices in full day care (FDC) pre-schools. These provide care for children aged 3 months to 5 years for greater than 5 hours per day.

The project aims to encourage full day care pre-schools to follow best practice in accordance with particular guidelines given to them, over the course of a year, with the help and support of health worker (HIP Supporter) who is trained to facilitate the pre-school in the award process

Aim:

  1. To recruit a qualified Dietitian / nutritionist (that meets with criteria outlined) and to train as HIP Supporter; to provide support to pre-schools in 2016 (April - June).

Methods:

Recruit one Supporter to support all pre-schools – staged payment
