Super Wiggles Healthy Lifestyles Programme

Mytime Active’s family programme for kids aged 2–7 has just arrived in the Walsall area. It’s a fun club run at handy local children’s centres and other community venues across Walsall and has something for everyone, big and small.

The clubs keep kids busy with messy play, singing and dancing and loads of other games that allow them to let off steam in a safe, fun way. Plus, we also give kids the chance to try out a wide range of new foods, which is great if any of your little ones are fussy eaters.

On top of all of this, they have got tonnes of bostin stuff for mums and dads. This includes tips on shopping on a budget, making healthy meals everyone enjoys and discovering what else is going on in your area. They will also give you some great advice on how to get your kids to do all the things they hate, like going to bed and sleeping, cleaning their teeth, putting their screens away and eating fruit and veg
