Fit 4 Life
Monday 20th February 2012
Get your little scrum-half healthy, active and feeling great
If your child is aged between 4-13 years, and you're worried they may be above a healthy weight.
A local and FREE health programme called Fit 4 Life will soon kick-off its new season across Halton.
Run by trained NHS staff and Vikings community coaches, Fit 4 Life has been designed specifically for kids aged 4-13 years and their families.
Fit 4 Life is held in a fun and supportive environment. The confidential sessions will help your child to:
Learn about healthy eating
Take part in fun activity sessions
Talk about junk food, snacks and treats
Sessions are conveniently held in the evenings once a week for 6 weeks.
Each session includes 45 minutes of fun physical activity with the Widnes Vikings community coaches. The final 30 minutes will see the kids and their parents working together looking at topics such as:
Planning balanced healthy meals
Looking at the fats and sugars that are hidden in some foods
How to understand food labels
Looking at the correct portion sizes for children
Cook and taste - your chance to join in preparing some healthy food and tasting it
To book your family onto the forthcoming programmes, please contact the Health Improvement Team. Places are limited so booking is essential.
