1 January from 8:00 am - 31 January from 5:00 pm
The healthy selfie campaign is for schools and families to show how they stay active and promote and celebrate healthy lifestyles, this is being run during the month of January.
This can be anything from walking to school, PE lessons, active breaks, trampolining in the garden, active learning, a trip out in nature, cooking healthy foods or making healthy snack options.
This is a great way of sharing ideas, celebrating those big and small healthy choices and inspiring others to be active and eat well.
To get involved as a school all you need to do is:
- Set aside a noticeboard area for children and staff to display their pictures
- Set the healthy selfie challenge as a homework task
- Celebrate children’s successes
- Tweet what you have been doing using #CandPHealthySelfie don’t forget to tag us also @CambridgeSSP
Please feel free to use our Healthy Selfie Poster to promote this campaign in your schools.
We have given a theme to each week of the month so that children can take a new photograph each week to show how they are keeping active and eating well. Please find below an overview for the month and the information outlining the themes for the 4 weeks.
So why not set yourself a challenge of doing a healthy selfie each week of the campaign?!
Week One – ‘Lets Get Going!’ This week is all about getting started – why not get out for a puddle walk or bike ride? Or you could get healthy in the kitchen with some healthy snacks or meals? Or get inventing – making up your own active game, playing football or setting yourself a personal challenge!
Week Two – ‘Get Others Involved’. This week can you do a healthy selfie with someone else? Perhaps get someone in your household to join you in your healthy endeavor? It can be anyone in your household – including any four legged friends or pets! Or you could get healthy with someone during a video call and take a selfie of yourselves!
Week Three – ‘Get a PB’. The challenge this week is to take a selfie while getting a personal best or trying something NEW. Can you improve your score on keepy uppy’s, skipping or throwing/catching? Can you increase the distance you walk or run? Can you try a new activity you haven’t done before?
Week Four – ‘Get Outdoors’. The challenge this week is to get outside for your selfie. Perhaps go for a walk, scoot or bike ride? Get out into the garden for some Football, Trampolining or Fitness? Perhaps set up an obstacle course in your garden?

These will also be on Twitter so you can retweet. For ideas we will be uploading a video at the beginning of each week over the next 4 weeks to help you.
Staying active and eating well is even more important in the current climate so get involved and share what you are doing! We can’t wait to see your healthy selfies!
