Healthy Choices for Children Posted on 11 Oct 2018

Healthy Choices

Healthy Choices is a FREE 12 week programme for 4-19 year olds who are above a healthy weight. One of our healthy lifestyle advisors will work with you and your family for up to 12 weeks, delivering fun and interactive sessions on a whole range of different topics around nutrition, health and lifestyles. 

We offer 45-minute sessions either in your home or in local community venues including children’s centres and schools. The programme offers personalised support that is designed to be a fun, positive and energising experience. The team will help you set simple realistic goals suited to your family to work towards a healthier lifestyle.

Each week, you and your child will explore a different topic with your healthy lifestyle advisor, for example:

  • the Eatwell Guide and food groups;
  • 5-a-day, and fruit and vegetable tasting;
  • physical activity and fitness;
  • portion sizing;
  • cooking skills and menu planning;
  • sugar swaps; and
  • understanding food labels.

Your advisor will also offer a weekly weigh-in, and help your family set a weekly goal, to help you on your journey to a healthier lifestyle.

If you're considering taking up the Healthy Choices challenge, think about the following questions:

  • Can you and your family commit the time and energy to attend weekly sessions for 12 weeks?
  • Are you in the right frame of mind to support each other to make lifestyle changes?
