Healthy helpers

Canning Times - - NEWS -

A FREE pro­gram to help chil­dren and their fam­i­lies man­age their weight is com­ing to sev­eral lo­cal lo­ca­tions.

The Bet­ter Health Pro­gram is a free life­style pro­gram for seven to 13-year-olds who are above a healthy weight.

The Health De­part­ment-funded pro­gram will be de­liv­ered from Term 4 at leisure cen­tre fa­cil­i­ties in Swan, Can­ning, Joondalup, Cock­burn, Rock­ing­ham, Stir­ling and Vic­to­ria Park.

Par­tic­i­pants will do two-hour ses­sions once a week for 10 weeks, re­ceiv­ing sup­port for eat­ing and ex­er­cise habits.

“The pro­gram is a fun, friendly and fam­ily-fo­cused,” WA project man­ager Chris Vavakis said.
