What We Do
For most of my adult life I have worked with children, either with my own child who was diagnosed with ADHD or with children in schools – and I noticed a huge problem; even though there are several amazing campaigns out there to promote healthy living, there is still an issue around children and obesity. In order for a mindset to change, children need to be engaged and empowered so that long term goals are achieved. Teachers and parents know it takes more than one lesson or one workshop to change habits, especially about something as important as healthy lifestyle choices.
The Bigger Problem
Children in the UK in year six are overweight or obese
Children in the UK experience mental health problems
Children in the UK do not take part in any organised sport
Children’s mindset about their own health in this country is a massive problem, but we can only lecture them so much!
Workshops Designed with Real Children in Mind
Children Need Varied Activities!
Lectures about healthy choices don’t always work. In order for children to be excited about health and well-being, they need to be having fun doing the activities!
Children Need Long Term Routine!
As teachers and parents know, children need an ongoing routine for something to really become part of their mindset!
Children Need to Feel Empowered
Children need more than a lecture, they need to be empowered to make healthy decisions on their own!
Children Need to know about Mental Health
Children need support to build resilience, which is the best indicator for a successful life.
“I love the enthusiasm, energy and whole idea”
“I think they were well planned, informative and engaging!”
