You are here: Peckham \ Health & Fitness \ WEIGHT-LOSS FOR FIVE TO SEVEN-YEAR-OLDS
19 January 2009
A FREE weight-loss programme for children aged five to seven is being introduced as part of a national initiative to promote a healthier lifestyle.
The MEND programme is offering a pilot scheme to families, encouraging parents to change their children's eating habits, as well as to become more active.
The one hour, 45 minute classes, which are on a first come first served basis, take place on Wednesday afternoons from 4-6pm at the Columbo Centre in Blackfriars.
Demand is expected to be high after the successful seven to thirteen-year-olds programme that MEND carried out last year.
Anna Potter, Programme Manager at the Columbo Centre MEND five to sevens programme, said: "The MEND Programme for five to sevens can really change families' lives. We offer a friendly relaxed atmosphere, to encourage children to give new things a go.
"Children become healthier, fitter and happier. We urge families to take the chance to improve their health with this fantastic free course."
