Get your child Fit 4 Life!Free and fun weight management programme for children in Halton
Fit 4 Life is a successful diet and exercise programme. It’s delivered by the Halton Health Improvement Team. The free fun sessions are aimed at children aged 4-13 years who are above a healthy weight and their families.
We can help children:
- Learn about healthy eating
- Take part in fun activity sessions
- Understand portion sizes
- Talk about junk food, snacks and treats
Overweight children are more likely to grow up into overweight adults. Your child’s weight matters, because it can affect their health now and in the future. There are simple steps you can take, with the appropriate support to hand, to help your child move towards a healthy weight.
Fit 4 Life sessions are held in the evenings once a week for 6 weeks and last 1 hour and a half. The confidential sessions look closely at a mix of healthy eating and physical activity and will help your child to choose healthier snacks and treats, get more active, improve confidence and understand portion sizes.
Parents and children take part together and sessions include activities and games designed to teach both adults and children about healthy eating, portion sizes, sugars and fats in a fun interactive way.
