Fitness course for kids
CHILDREN in Perth have the chance to join a free program focusing on healthy eating, positive behaviours and fun games and activities for kids.
The 10-week Better Health Program is for children aged between seven and 13 who are above a healthy weight.
Programs will run at local leisure and community venues for two hours each week. As a component of the WA Healthy Children’s Program, which is jointly funded by the West Australian and Australian Governments, the program is completely free for families.
The program is tailored for overweight children and their parents. Its aim is to help people understand and change unhealthy attitudes towards food and fitness.
Held in twice-weekly sessions and conducted by health and fitness professionals, the program helps children become fitter, healthier and happier and delivers long-term health benefits.
Children join in fun physical activity sessions designed to improve their selfconfidence and self-esteem as well as their physical fitness.
Contact Better Health Company on 1300 822 953 or visit www.betterhealth program.org to register’. A parent or carer must accompany each child to every session.
