Lifestyle course aims to get children in Gosport fit

Have your say

Families in Gosport will have the opportunity to take part in a free healthy lifestyle course starting in October.

The 10-week Mend (mind, exercise, nutrition, do it) programme aims to get children aged between seven to 13 more active and following a healthy diet.

With one in three children in the UK classed as overweight or obese, the programme run by MyTime Active looks to tackle the local obesity problem.

The free course will start on October 5, with the sessions being held at Brune Park Community School, in Military Road.

The programme was developed by health experts at Great Ormond Street Hospital, and will teach families about healthy portion sizes and the effect different foods have on their health and wellbeing.

Mend healthy lifestyle clubs helps families make educated choices, allowing them to become fitter, healthier and more active for life.

Spaces for the course are limited so to book your place visit or call 0800 230 0263.
