Healthy Weight support

Ways to eat healthily, keep active, feel fitter, more energetic and happier about yourself.

As School Nurses we feel passionately about supporting any family, child and young person to achieve a healthier weight. We have many years of experience in supporting parents, children and young people to manage their weight. We do not ‘tell’ you what to do but work with you and your family to make small achievable changes to become healthier, fitter and feel better about yourself!

Do not feel embarrassed, we are here for everyone, it’s best to support children when they are younger rather than wait until they are older and may have developed some health issues. We may ask you as a family to complete some food diaries initially and we can then individually look at how best to support you, we can signpost you to different websites and we have a variety of resources to make our sessions more fun!
