Creating Miles of Smiles at Pitsmoor Adventure Playground

10 Jun

It was highlighted recently that the Sheffield Children’s Hospital has been busy due to Sheffield having one of the highest rate of tooth decay in children aged under 10 in the UK, with a staggering 1,140 youngsters having rotting teeth removed in 2014-15.

This equates to three children a day needing hospital treatment because their decay is so bad, this puts a strain on an already stretched NHS, especially when oral care is supposed to be restricted to dental practices and even far more worrying is the effect on children’s health.

With this in mind Children, Young People and Families in the Pitsmoor area have been working with the support of Tesco’s Saville Street and Pitsmoor Adventure Playground CIO on a Healthy living initiative throughout the June Half –term to explore ways to improving health.

The Children, young people and families participated in arrange of healthy activities including: playing traditional street games, gardening, painting, litter picking, healthy eating and demonstrations were given on how to brush your teeth properly and how to look and feel good.

Patrick Meleady Charity Manager said “The children really enjoyed the fun activities and learned all about the benefits and importance of looking after their personal health and hygiene, this week has really been one with miles of smiles.”

Alexandra aged 10 said “I really enjoyed showing some of my friends how to brush their teeth properly and I enjoyed eating the apricot fruit.”
