Hampshire families with children aged five to 13 years can now sign up to the Mend programme (Mind, Exercise, Nutrition…Do It!).
The 10-week programmes help families to work together to develop sustainable, fun and healthy lives and address issues associated with being overweight.
It helps all the family understand the importance of being active and the many fun ways to get active as a family as well as the complexities of things such as food labelling, different types of food, how much and what types of food you need.
The new programmes will be starting soon in Havant. To benefit, the child must be above a healthy weight (overweight or obese) – you can check your child’s weight at mendcentral.org/bmi and it may also be recommended that you try Mend after your child has had their height and weight measured by their school nursing services.
The programmes in Havant begin on February 2 and will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4-6pm at Havant Leisure Centre, Civic Centre Road, Havant.
To book a place on this programme please call Sarah Moulds, Havant programme manager on (023) 9248 8477 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
