A totally free and fun group aimed to help families make long term changes towards eating more healthily and being more active starts at Brockington College on Thursday 24 May 2012.
The Family Lifestyle Club (FLiC) is an eight week programme for children aged 8 – 13 and their families, where they can get hands-on in the kitchen together. They will experience our “bush tucker trial” and make good-for-you snacks like fruit kebabs and smoothies.
Parents also get the chance to find out more about healthier family eating from an NHS Dietitian – on topics like the eat well plate and sensible portion sizes – whilst children play new games with a Physical Activity Coordinator from Blaby Council.
Groups will be held every Thursday, 4:00pm – 6:00pm, Brockington College, Blaby Road, Enderby, LE19 4AQ – for eight weeks from 24 May 2012.
The sessions, aimed to help families be more fit and healthy, come as current national figures from the Department of Health report that one in four 10 – 11 year olds are over-weight.
One parent who took part in a previous programme with their children said,
“The boys have tried new foods and even had them again at home,” whilst another said, “The whole family have enjoyed taking part in FLiC”.
