Active Families

Active Families is a programme for young people aged 5-18 years. The main goal is to increase physical activity and assist with healthy food choices.

Children are referred to this programme by a health professional if there is a concern with a child's weight. When we receive the referral, Active & Well staff will help your family create goals to increase physical activity, and make healthy food choices.

Active & Well staff will meet with your family once a month for up to a year, and will help your family to keep up the lifestyle changes you've made to live happy and healthy lives.

Active & Well Active Families also works alongside the more intensive Bodywise programme which is funded by the Waikato District Health Board. If you would like more information regarding either programme, or are at all concerned about your child’s weight, email Gabby or Alex at Sport Waikato or phone 07 858 5388.
