Weight management

It's important to keep a healthy weight. Enter your weight and height into the NHS weight calculator to check which range you fall into.

Healthy Me

Healthy Me is primarily about having fun! It is a free, 10-week family healthy lifestyle programme for 7 to 11-year-olds and their families. At Healthy Me, we educate families about nutrition and physical activity, helping them to make small, positive lifestyle changes to become healthier, and reach and maintain a healthy weight. Each session is packed full with fun physical activity!

Families receive support over the 10-week programme and beyond through keeping in touch days, where we can review their progress and ensure they continue to make the positive changes they have made during the course.
