New autumn children’s healthy lifestyle programme to start

Places are available for the latest children’s healthy lifestyle programme due to start in Bradford on 1st October.

The free course, run by Bradford Council, will help children and parents find out how they can eat more healthily and become more physically active by supporting them to make small but effective lifestyle changes.

The children will also participate in fun physical activity sessions each week.

Participants need to be aged between 5 and 11 and will need to be accompanied by a parent or carer.

The 9 week programme runs from the Karmand Community Centre on Barkerend Road, BD3, between 5-7pm on Thursdays.

Anyone wanting more information or wanting to take part can call 01274 435387.

Lydia Worton from Bradford Council’s Health Improvement Team said: “This is a great chance for parents or carers who are concerned about their child’s weight, or simply wish to learn how to become healthier, to take some positive action.

“The programme is about empowering children and their parents by giving them the knowledge to make the right lifestyle choices by making small changes in your lifestyle.”

“Making lots of small changes can make a different to their health and wellbeing.”
