If your child is overweight, there's lots you can do to help them become a healthy weight as they grow.
As a parent, there's lots you can do to help your child become a healthier weight. Getting them to be more active and eat well is important. OneLife Suffolk provide fun, interactive 10 week programmes for children and young people aged 2-18 across the county to provide them and their families with tips on eating healthily and keeping them active.
By combining physical activity and games with educational activities, they make reaching and maintaining a healthy weight fun. The programmes, which are tailored to specific age groups, are designed to benefit the whole family, with parents/carers taking part in their own sessions while the children get involved in various interactive activities.
The sessions run after school and in the holidays and cover things from snacking and eating out to food labels and portion sizes, as well as the importance of getting your 5-a-day.
The programmes also link into other local groups and clubs to help you make long term lifestyle changes.
