This week at the Annual Healthy Ireland Network, the Minister for Health Promotion, Ms Catherine Byrne TD, launched the new Healthy Meeting Guidelines. These guidelines are such as useful and timely resource since meetings are a regular part of many people’s working lives and often involve sitting for a long time with few opportunities to be active. The guidelines offer practical suggestions for healthy food options and for including opportunities for physical activity. In addition, Ashling Jennings who is a member of the AHPI and IUHPE Registered Health Promotion Practitioner was involved in the development of the guidelines. Ashling’s research, as part of her MA in Health Promotion in NUI Galway, contributed to the development of these Healthy Meeting Guidelines.
