Program targets weight
A FREE program to help children and their families manage their weight is coming to several locations across the metropolitan area.
The Better Health Program is a free healthy lifestyle program for seven to 13-yearolds who are above a healthy weight.
The Health Department-funded program will be delivered from Term 4 at seven leisure centre facilities, including 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.
