What is it?
In Bexley, we are currently delivering a fun and educational virtual online service, by nutritionists, to help you and your family make informed choices on lifestyles changes to ensure your child or children are a healthy weight. The service is made up of 8 weekly, 75 minute, 121 or group sessions( online or by phone), and covers topics such as:
- Understanding food labels
- Sugary drinks
- Portion sizes
- Cooking on a budget
- Reducing sedentary behaviour; during lockdown and beyond
- Weekly recipes to cook at home
- Live cookery class to follow at home
These sessions are for families with children, above the healthy weight range, living within Bexley borough and aged 4-11 years old. The programme is designed to inspire and help you feed your child healthy and nutritious meals; we also provide you with delicious recipes to try at home.
The programme also includes sessions designed specifically to encourage the children to try more cooking. These sessions are run throughout the 8 week course, allowing children to take part in an hour’s cookery completing recipes and enjoying cooking, helping them get more kitchen skills and make new friends, whilst the parent / Guardian learns new nutrition facts and tips.
Please note this service may change to a face to face group sessions once COVID-19 restrictions in the United Kingdom change, in accordance to Government regulations.
