In a bid to achieve safe and sustainable weight change and create an effective lifestyle change, Bradford Council’s healthy living team are running free children weight management courses.

The programme, due to start in Bradford on 30 September, includes an hour of exercise for the child. Participants need to be aged between 5 and 11 and will need to be
accompanied by a parent or carer.

The programme, starting at Oasis Academy Lister Park, runs between 5-7pm on Tuesdays. 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 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.”
