We know our environment can make it difficult to be a healthy weight and there are many factors that can affect a child’s weight. For example, the cost of healthy food, the abundance of fast food, and the limited spaces for safe physical activities can make it difficult for families to make healthy choices.
We believe there is no one size fits all solution when it comes to healthy lifestyles as families will have different needs, priorities, and interests.
Our aim is to take a holistic approach by seeking to understand each family’s circumstances so the right support can be offered.
