Event description
A panel discussion on Body Happy Parents, part of Molly Forbes #FreeFromDiets campaign.

About this Event

Molly Forbes launched the #FreeFromDiets campaign in June 2019, founded on her belief that schools & places of child play should be safe spaces where children and young people aren’t at risk of being body shamed or exposed to harmful messaging around dieting and diet culture, or encouraged - whether inadvertently or not - to focus on ideas around restricting food and aspiring to a particular body type.

The Body Happy Parents event is the 2nd part of a 3 part event series created to raise awareness of the campaign and open up the conversation around the topic through discussion led by a panel of experts and hosted by Molly Forbes. We will follow up the panel discussion with an open Q&A session, allowing the audience to ask questions & share their experiences with the panel.

The aim of each of these events is for the #FreeFromDiets team to leave with ideas of tangible problems & issues in this area from the audience, these will then be taken into a roundtable discussion the following day with the #FreeFromDiets team, policy makers and people in position of power to make change, we will decide on one select problem from each event, which the #FreeFromDiets team will then work to solve. As an example, we envisage a potential problem being, how do we change our language around children to be more body happy? We will then put together a manifesto & top tips of language swaps for parents.

Join Molly to be involved in the change and support the #FreeFromDiets campaign.
