Healthy Me! – healthier children

Healthy Me is a fun 10 week healthy lifestyle programme for children aged seven to 11 and their families, who may be less active than recommended and above their healthy weight range.

Young people and their families can attend the ten 90-minute sessions based in health and wellbeing centres and leisure centres across the county to find out about nutrition, food groups, portion sizes, food labelling, physical activity and making healthier choices a habit.

Theory and practical elements, including a supermarket sweep style hunt for healthy food labels, are mixed together to make the sessions fun and informative.

The programme builds on the success of the previous SHINE programme which helped 107 families. Once the programme is completed families will be supported to continue their healthy lifestyles
The programme runs for 10 weekly sessions during term time using engaging, topical and fun sessions. It is also free

The next programme starts at the Olympiad in Chippenham on the 19th September from 4.15pm – 5.45pm. For more information:
