London Borough of Bexley
Child Weight Management
What is it?
In Bexley, we will be delivering services to help you and your children make informed choices on your lifestyles to help ensuring the child or children stay at a healthy weight. The service is made up of 12 weekly 90 minute group sessions that are held alongside others who have been referred to us and covers things like:
• Understanding healthy eating
• Sugary drinks
• Healthy school food
• Reducing sedentary behaviour
• Five-a-day food tasting
These sessions are for families with children aged 4-11 and are designed to help you make healthy lifestyle choices, as well as normalising and prioritising them within your family. The group meetings are designed to help you feed your child healthy, nutritious and, above all, delicious meals as well as encouraging your children to get active.
On that note, the programme also includes sessions designed specifically to encourage the children to get more active. These sessions are run throughout the 12 week course, allowing you to drop your children off with us for them to take part in an hour’s activity, completing challenges and enjoying fun, physical games completely free, helping them get more active and make new friends.
In short, this service is about helping you make changes in the long term, with the aim of changing your child’s lifestyle for good and helping them stay healthy throughout their life.
