We all admit that it is difficult to make changes, but all who attended the Peach sessions know that they have taken a step in the direction of positive change.
One step at a time, little changes lead to small successes and ongoing progress, so WELL DONE!
There may be a further Peach Program in Ingham in the near future.
If you are interested in knowing more about this free PEACH (Parenting, Eating and Activity for Child Health) program contact the below number to register your interest.
Who is it for: Families who would like to receive information on healthy eating habits, or who are struggling to maintain a healthy weight in their children aged 5-11 years are eligible for enrolment.
The program runs for 6 months and consists of 10 group sessions that run for 90 minutes each.
The first 9 sessions are held weekly within the school term. Ongoing individualised family support is offered through the second half of the program ending with one final group session.
Some of the topics covered include nutrition skills, relationships with food and eating, changing family lifestyle behaviours and making healthy eating affordable. While the parent sessions are taking place, children enjoy fun active play with a trained child physical activity facilitator.
