PARENTS of pupils at Langley Mill Junior School will receive text messages offering advice on healthy meals for their children.
The school is taking part in a pilot scheme aiming to encourage children and their families to live a healthier lifestyle.
Text messages will offer health tips, nutritional advice and information about leisure activities. They will be sent out to the parents of 720 schoolchildren across the county once a month for six months.
Programme leader Jane Hicken said: “All the goals and advice we’re giving people is straightforward and achievable, and by drawing the whole family in we want to motivate hundreds of people in Derbyshire towards a better, healthier life.”
Families that take part will be rewarded with free leisure passes.
