Healthy Weight (4-7 years)

Healthy Weight 4-7 years is a 12 week programme aimed at parents of children aged 4-7 years old who are above a healthy weight.  Over the 12 weeks, we will meet once a week and look at nutrition, healthy foods, portion sizes, food labelling, internal and external triggers, behaviour change and practical cooking skills. The programme will focus on your whole family making changes.

There is also a physical activity element to the 'family sessions' with lots of fun games encouraging your child/ren to become more active and to help increase their confidence and self esteem.  For the family sessions, it is essential that at least one parent/guardian attends the programme too, but your whole family (including other siblings) are invited and encouraged to attend these sessions. 

Rather than focusing on weight loss, we will take the approach of looking at weight management skills.  This includes inspiring families to adopt a healthier lifestyle and enjoy preparing and eating healthy foods, as well as reading food labels and healthy shopping on a budget

The programme is completely FREE!  However, we do require a high level of commitment, particularly with regards to time.  For you and your family to get the most out of the programme it is essential that you try to attend all the sessions.  As there is quite a lot to cover we ask that you arrive on time so we will be able to discuss the different topics in more detail.  Each session covers a different topic, so there are lots of different interesting facts to learn.  The sessions have lots of fun hand outs and interactive games.  The programme aims to be varied, fun and educational.

The successful outcome of the programme will be that your whole family benefits, supports each other throughout the programme and that you all go on to lead and sustain a healthier, happier and more active lifestyle, as a family.

We hope this has provided you with more information about the programme.  If you have any more questions, please contact us at Cornwall Healthy Weight.  We look forward to hearing from you soon.
