Food and physical activity

Over the last few years, there has been growing concern over the current and future physical and emotional health and wellbeing of children and young people at school. Those whose diet or physical activity levels are not healthy may become overweight, obese or even underweight. All these things can have a substantial impact on health, both in childhood and in later life.

Eat Well Move More is Solihull’s family weight management and healthy lifestyles programme for families in Solihull with children aged 4-16 years who have concerns over their child’s health and would like support and guidance to make healthy lifestyle changes. Their latest newsletter can be downloaded here: EWMM August Newsletter 2017. Details of the current schools’ programme can be found here: Schools Programme Offer Jan 17

The Change 4 life website contains a range of tools and tips for encouraging healthy eating and increasing physical activity amongst children and their families.
