Go4Fun promotes healthy active children

Registrations are now open for the Go4Fun face-to-face program to encourage healthy active youngsters which will return in Term 3 of school, starting on July 18.

The program will be held at the Epicentre, San Remo, on Mondays from 3.30pm to 5.30pm, Niagara Park Stadium on Tuesdays from 4pm to 6pm and PCYC at Bateau Bay on Wednesdays from 4pm to 6pm.

Go4Fun is a free 10-week program for children aged 7 to 13 who are above a healthy weight, and their families, to improve eating and activity habits.

The program is run by trained health and community professionals with tailored advice about healthy eating through group activities and games where children can make new friends and receive rewards and prizes.

It’s designed to be a fun way for children to build self-esteem and learn about living a healthy life with positive benefits for the whole family.

To register for the Go4Fun face-to-face program phone 1800 780 900 or alternatively sign up for the online version for weekly activity sessions and coaching at go4funonline.com.au

One of the previous participants, Christine, said the program worked fantastically for her family with three little kids.

“I’ve had an interest in getting my family more involved in healthy eating as a family unit,” she said.

“We’ve got a really busy schedule with three children and two adults to try and juggle with my husband working split shifts and myself in a casual position.

“So being able to complete the program when we’ve got the five of us available to do the online program, it fitted in beautifully with our family.

“We were in the comfort of our own home, so the kids were relaxed and really welcoming to the information that was presented and it was easier to take away what we needed to from the sessions,” Christine said.
