Basingstoke Sports Trust MEND programme

Families with children aged 5-7 living in Basingstoke can now sign up for a FREE healthy lifestyle programme with their child(ren).  The fun-filled MEND programme (Mind, Exercise, Nutrition…Do It!) will be held at Basingstoke Sports Centre, Festival Place 4 – 6 pm weekly from Tuesday 21st January 2014.

Developed by experts in child health and funded by Hampshire County Council, MEND 5-7 helps children who are above a healthy weight to become fitter, healthier and happier.

During the 10-week course children try new healthy snacks and take part in fun games and activities, while parents learn fun new ways to play with their child, how to stop temper tantrums and encourage healthy behaviour. 

Emma Cameron, the programme manager for MEND 5-7 in Basingstoke, said “Encouraging your child to eat healthily can be tough for parents.  At MEND 5-7 parents learn how to make small changes to the food their family eats and gives them creative and fun ways to get their child more active.”  

Children leave MEND brimming with self-confidence, while parents have the confidence and enthusiasm to continue with the healthy changes long after the programme has ended. MEND is recommended for any parent in Basingstoke who is concerned about their child’s weight.

Places are limited on this FREE course so please register your family for the MEND programme now by calling 0800 230 0263 or visiting www.mendcentral.org
