Helping Surrey families 'Be Your Best'

New Family Weight Management programme aims at 0-11 year olds

 

Problems caused by excess weight directly cost the NHS over £6bn a year and people who are obese die on average 9 years earlier.

 

In the south east, over 60% of adults are overweight, with more than a quarter classed as obese. Worse still, we're exporting the problem to our children: girls are ten times more likely to be obese if their mum's obese. while for boys and dads there's a sixfold increase.

 

That's why Surrey Public Health have commissioned a new programme to help disadvantaged families with overweight children under 12. Be Your Best will offer parents a mix of nurse-led private visits and group sessions with the aim of helping families change their approach to diet and exercise. More details coming soon.

This Girl Can - the Sport England campaign that helps to raise the profile of sport for women - have a new TV ad to encourage more females to get active.

British Blind Sport have launched their new Activity Finder to help those with VI find accessible sports. Encourage clubs you know to register.

A new study of 100k+ people in the US has found that those who make slightly healthier choices gain disease-free extra years (up to 10 for women).
