Free 12-week weight management programme for children

Date: Wednesday, 10th Aug 2022 | Category: General

The team at Achieve Oxfordshire help local residents to lose weight, get fitter and healthier by making small, sustainable lifestyle changes through our range of free weight management programmes. Previously, we have only ever been able to offer this to adults, however we are very excited to launch our first child weight management programme called Gloji Energy.

This exciting new 12-week programme is fully funded by Oxfordshire County Council and therefore a free programme for children and their parents/carers. Gloji Energy will be accessible to children aged 4-12 years old. There will be both group and one to one sessions available, dependant on the needs of each family.

The sessions will be 1 hour long which will involve 45 minutes of physical activity for the children whilst the parents/carers learn about nutrition and healthy habits with our team of expert practitioners. Parents/carers can expect to learn things including portion sizes, snacking habits, children’s nutritional requirements and so much more. During this time children will engage in fun interactive sessions which will include things such as trampolining, dance, martial arts, and dodgeball. The remaining 15 minutes will be an interactive activity for the whole family.

These sessions are designed to help get the whole family moving and make healthier lifestyle choices together. Your child will be eligible for this programme if their weight is in the 91st percentile or above.
