HENRY, based in Oxford, aims to give babies and young children a healthy start in life.
One in five children is either overweight or obese by the time they start school at the age of five. HENRY (Health, Exercise, Nutrition for the Really Young) trains health professionals and works with families to provide parents with practical support and guidance.
What the judges thought
'HENRY is an impressive organisation that has achieved much in a relatively short period of time. It works in partnership with parents, practitioners and communities. It has a wide reach, extending across the UK, giving parents, along with health and early learning professionals the tools to tackle obesity.'
