The Children’s Healthy Lifestyle Team can provide you and your child with practical support and advice if you are concerned that you child is not a healthy weight or has been identified as very overweight from the NCMP programme.
If your child has been measured in school and has a high Body Mass Index (BMI), a member of the team will contact you to discuss the result either by telephone or offer you an appointment in a local Children’s Centre.
Lots of help and advice is available to support children to be healthy and appointments are delivered in a sensitive, fun, child centred way to promote positive emotional well-being. 1-1 sessions and groups are offered followed your initial appointment. If you would like to talk to a member of the Children’s Healthy Lifestyle Team please contact them on 0208 661 3904.
