Healthy Me

Healthy Me is a fun, free, healthy lifestyle journey for children aged 7-11 and their families.  The programme is designed to support children and young people to achieve a healthy weight.  These may be children who:

 

  • have little or no knowledge regarding healthy eating
  • struggle to take part in physical activity for various reasons
  • struggle with their confidence and self-esteem

Families will come away brimming with ideas, energy and knowledge, and your children and  the rest of your family will be supported to reach and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Our journey lasts for 10 weeks, once a week during term time.  Each session is 90 minutes and split between fun physical activities and learning about healthy eating.  Plus of course, making friends along the way.

There will also be the opportunity to take on some of our coaches at various challenges and quizzes.

Some of the topics we cover include portion control, sugar vs fats, tips and tricks around the kitchen, themed games such as supermarket sweep.

We will offer you our support for a whole year following completion of the course by providing activities for you to take part in at our leisure centres and inviting you back during school holidays to our fun days, which involve activities such as bouncy castles, assault courses, and of course the famous smoothie bike.

Sessions take place at Five Rivers Health & Wellbeing Centre in Salisbury on Wednesdays from 4.30pm -6pm.  Next year’s sessions start from the 8th January 2018.
