Introducing ALFIE's virtual healthy families programme

09 Jul 2020

The Healthy Families team are pleased to inform you that ALFIE Ealing is back.

We are currently delivering a range of virtual programmes for overweight children aged 5 - 13 years (a parent / carer must be present).

About the programmes

The programmes will be delivered via BlueJeans (similar to Zoom) and as usual will include nutrition topics such as food groups, portion sizes and label reading; as well as home work outs with our physical activity lead.

The programmes will include a 1:1 appointment (again via BlueJeans) where families get to meet the team, learn more about what to expect on the programme (including a set of ground rules for staying safe online) and start to set their own individualised SMART Goals; this will be followed by weekly (or daily for ALFIE 5 day summer bootcamps) group sessions with other families.

Virtual 5 day bootcamp

Our next programmes take place over the summer holidays and will be a virtual 5 day bootcamp. This is a great opportunity for families to get fitter, healthier and more active together. See our bootcamp timetable download and you can refer children using the referral form on System1.

Please do refer families you think may benefit from this programme.

We will also be running virtual 10 week programmes again at the start of the new school year.

All programmes are delivered by qualified nutrition and physical activity professionals. Please note this programme is free of charge, places are limited and an adult (parent/carer) must be present at all sessions.
