1 January, 2013
Submitted: 30 April, 2015
Through your physical activity pledges you will be working with employees, customers/consumers and/or local communities. For each group (as applicable) please describe the specific activities or projects you have undertaken over the past year.
For example, employee incentive schemes to promote physical activity, awareness raising activities or improvements to facilites to promote active travel.
During 2014 we have revamped the existing materials and created a new, online Wellness Portal which included a dedicated Physical Activity page giving employees access to all our services and information related to encouraging activity and exercise.
For example, access to our fitness instructors for fitness or exercise related advice, current events and employee blogs and other useful links.
We promote the CMO's physical activity guidelines at regular intervals during the year via internal communications and have incorporated a physical activity assessment in our employee health checks which assesses their current level of fitness and provides coaching to help individuals improve this if desired.
For example, supporting/sponsoring local physical activity programmes, promoting physical activity to customers through website campaigns or in-store materials.
For example, support for community-based physical activity programmes (such as funding, sponsorship or other promotion activity), working with local partners to engage communities is physical activity opportunities.
Through the Nestle UK Healthy Kids Programme, Nestle UK are a supporting PPP consortium member of the Phunky Foods Programme and have been a funding partner since 2007.
During 2014/15, the Nestle Healthy Kids Programme has provided support to deliver the programme in 288 schools reaching approximately 73,388 pupils.
The objectives of the Programme are to promote greater awareness and knowledge through educating primary school children the importance of healthy eating & physical activity through art, drama, music, play and hands-on food experience. The Phunky Foods Programme provides a package including training and support for schools, curriculum based lesson plans and resources to help the school deliver the material.
The revised Chief Medicial Officers (CMO) guidelines provide physical activity recommendations for four distinct age groups. From the following list, please indicate the age groups you have focused on in disseminating the guidelines (if unknown, please explain why):
Early years (under 5s), Children & young people (5-18), Adults (19-64), Older adults (65+)
All employees are our focus through our employee engagement, with the majority falling into the Adult age range.
Please estimate the number of people reached through your activities on this pledge and explain how you arrived at this estimate:
Please see above for details.
We would be interested to know if your pledge activity over the last year has delivered a measurable increase in participation in physical activity. If so, please describe and provide an estimate of the level of increase and how you measured this. There is a 2000-character limit when completing this section.
