The Healthy Families HENRY programme is designed to give parents the tools and skills they need for a healthy family lifestyle. As a parent we want best for our children, but it’s not always easy to know what they need or make healthy choices, for this reason many of us aren’t sure where to turn for support and advice on how to raise our families. HENRY programme has helped thousands of families adopt a healthier and happier lifestyle.
Healthy Families covers five main themes:
- Parenting skills
- How we eat
- What we eat
- Being active
- Emotional well-being
This 8 week programme combines practical activities with sound information and further tips on Let’s Get Cooking and Let’s Get Active, give extra nutritional advice, some recipes to try and plenty of ides to keep children and family active.
