Weight management

It's important to keep a healthy weight. Enter your weight and height into the NHS healthy 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.
