i would class it as a campaign. depends on if you are supposed to focus on gov campaigns or just campaigns in general. can you ask your tutor?

5 a day excellent choice, pretty certain that relates back to the nhs cancer plan, but now also very important to Choosing health (latest gov white paper)

back to sleep campaign

smoking cessation (and always loads on that and can relate to the nsf for coronary heart disease and others )

reducing salt intake (sid slug very contentious-google it)

if u wanted something different there was the testicular awareness campain but cant remember what it was called (something about checking ur balls)

Jamie Oliver definitely counts as a campaign and you'll be able to find loads of current information on the web

if they need to be successfull campaigns you might be better sticking to
, back to sleep, 5 a day, smoking cessation, drinking (not sure if drink driving might be classed as a safety campain)

lots of evidence to say these campaigns have had significant effects on health, saving lives

I would go for 5 a day (you can link Jamie Oliver and healthy eating in to this as a continuation due to teh sucess of teh campaign)
smoking cessation
and back to sleep
