Links for Keeping Active and Eating Healthy

We have put together a few useful links which you may wish to use/share with families you are working with to help maintain a healthy diet keep active during this restrictive period:-

Eating Healthy

BeeZee Bodies

The commissioned tier 2 weight management service in the county is continuing to run sessions for children (between 5-15) and their families via webinars. Families will need to sign up to the service either by referral from a professional or self-referral and will be given all the instructions once they speak to a staff member.

Webinars are group based and offer interaction with other families, activities during the session, and the chance to ask questions. Free 1-2-1 virtual appointments with a nutritionist are available for families who have already completed the BeeZee Families service or are interested in signing up and are available on Tuesday afternoons. 

Recipes, blog posts, healthy tips, behaviour change strategies, cooking videos, and physical activity ideas for kids and adults are all available on the BeeZee Bodies website as well as their social media pages which are updated multiple times a week.
