Xplore Child Weight Management

Barnet

Xplore's eight-week lifestyle weight management programme (tier 2) supports families to make sustained lifestyle and dietary changes, helping children and young people who are over the healthy weight range to move more, eat well and feel good.

The programme takes place in leisure centres after school to ensure that parents and children are able to attend. Parents will receive nutritional workshops from licensed nutritionists, while children will attend a physical activity workshop. At the end of the programme, the two approaches are combined and the children receive healthy eating advice.

See the summary document in Downloads for full details of the service.
