Parents and children are being urged to get healthy and try new foods.

Sainsbury’s is running its annual Active Kids event, encouraging residents to collect vouchers in store from January 27 to May 3 to help registered schools, groups and clubs across Eastbourne get sports and cooking equipment and experiences.

Customers receive one voucher for every £10 they spend in supermarkets and one voucher for every £5 they spend in convenience stores. Over the years the scheme has grown and expanded to help inspire healthy eating for children and includes items of cooking equipment to get them involved.

This year , the Taste Buddies Challenge has been introduced to help parents try new foods with their children, in order 
 to encourage them to
enjoy a wider variety of foods.
