Help for families fighting the flab
12:00pm Friday 9th August 2013 in News
OVERWEIGHT children as young as five are to be encouraged to fight the flab to reverse a worrying trend of expanding waistlines and declining activity among the young.
A new, free, healthy lifestyle programme for children aged five to seven – and their parents – is starting in Andover.
MEND, which stands for Mind, Exercise, Nutrition... Do It! has been developed by experts in child health to help children above a healthy weight become fitter, healthier and happier.
The course will be held at Andover Leisure Centre for 10 weeks starting from 17 September.
During the course children will try new healthy snacks and take part in fun games and activities.
At the same time their parents will learn fun, new ways to play with their child, how to stop temper tantrums and encourage healthy behaviour.
See today's paper for the full story.
