THREE Sheffield businesses have been named winners for helping new mums give their babies the best start.

John Lewis, Snap Deli of Ecclesall Road and Rivelin Park Café have been given the thumbs-up from breastfeeding mums.

They were handed Breastfeeding Friendly Awards after city mums were asked to nominate venues where they feel comfortable and relaxed when feeding.

The trio were presented with their awards during Breastfeeding Awareness Week as part of NHS Sheffield’s Let’s Change4Life.

Rob Smith, from Rivelin Café, said: “We are unbelievably touched that our customers feel comfortable to nominate us for this award and that our service meets their high standards. We pride ourselves on being a family-oriented café and being part of the Breastfeeding Friendly Award Scheme is an important part of this.”

More than 30 venues and workplaces in Sheffield have Breastfeeding Friendly status.
