[ Noticeboard: The Truth About Food ]

This week SE1 is one of the target areas of a recruitment
drive for a new BBC programme about kids and food, part of a
six-part series called 'The Truth about Food' due to air on
BBC2 in January 2007. 

Right now the BBC is looking to recruit children and
parents. It's a one off opportunity to join a fun-packed and
informative course that combines learning about food with
activities such as swimming, games and a farm visit. The aim
is to find 10 children aged between 9 and 12 years of age
who have a variety of issues regarding food. "Is your child
is a faddy eater, or funny about food? Then take a back seat
on the nagging and work with a team of professionals to help
transform your troublesome eater into a much happier, health
conscious kid.   

The course, which starts in April, will be run by the MEND
project and filmed by the BBC crew. The venue is described
as being "a stone's throw from Tate Modern".

If you think you and your child might benefit from being
involved then please phone: 0870 010 6770 or email
truthaboutfood@bbc.co.uk
Please quote "kids course" and leave a contact phone number.
