Healthy Me is a fun 10 week healthy lifestyle programme for children aged 7-11 and their families, who may be less active than recommended and above their healthy weight range.
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.
