Healthy Me

Healthy Me is a free fun 10 week healthy lifestyle programme for children aged 7-18* and their families, who may be less active than recommended and above their healthy weight range.

*this extension to age 18 is a recent change during 2021 (previously up to 11) and may not be currently reflected in all programme materials and webpages.  

Young people and their families can attend the ten 90-minute sessions based in health and wellbeing centres and leisure centres across the county to find out about nutrition, food groups, portion sizes, food labeling, physical activity and making healthier choices a habit.

Theory and practical elements, including a supermarket sweep style hunt for healthy food labels, are mixed together to make the sessions fun and informative.

Healthy Me has supported over 150 children and their families to make positive healthy lifestyle changes. Once the programme has been completed, families will be supported to continue their healthy lifestyles.

Healthy Me Bitesize

Healthy Me offers schools a 6 week Healthy Me Bitesize programme aimed at Years 4 and Year 5 children to engage them in healthy eating and fun physical activity sessions. The programme also encourages engagement with the child’s family through weekly take home tasks. Contact the Healthy Me team for more information on how you can get your school signed up;
