The Mind, Exercise, Nutrition…Do it! Programme is an exciting opportunity for families who want to be more active and learn about healthy eating. Each week, everyone attends an interactive hour-long workshop as a group. Children spend the second hour doing physical activity in a friendly, safe and non-judgmental environment while the adults discuss specific topics in more detail together.
What kinds of things do we learn about on MEND?
- Reading and understanding food labels
- How much fat and sugar is in our food?
- Kids get more active with our fun exercise sessions
- Cooking on a budget
- What is the right sized portion for our family?
- Fussy eating and much, much more…
Children also get a free t-shirt, water bottle, bag and folder with tips to help the whole family become fitter, healthier and happier!
Please note a parent or carer must accompany the child to every session. Other siblings above the age of 5 years are welcome to join us if they are supportive. Each place on a MEND programme is worth £400 but thanks to funding from Families First, it is FREE for you and your family.
