Child and Family Weight Management

Last Modified November 29, 2016


What is Making Changes?

It’s a free service for children aged between 5 and 11 who need a bit of extra support with maintaining a healthy weight. We can help families with:

  • Healthy eating advice, including portion sizes, food labelling and hydration 
  • Family exercise sessions with a dedicated instructor
  • A support plan including eating on a budget and cooking at home
  • 3 months FREE access to Blackpool Council’s sports and leisure facilities (including high ropes and climbing walls) on completion of the programme 

What does the programme involve?

Designed over 12 weeks, families will attend fun and friendly 90 minute group sessions each week with a dedicated gym instructor (please note all children must be accompanied by an adult.)
