Supporting Families with Children from 5 to 12 years 

What is Active Families?

Active Families assists families of overweight and obese children to become more active, gain nutrition knowledge and become involved in regular activity (sport). Families receive support through weekly activity sessions that build skills for sport and increase confidence levels around being active. Specific nutrition knowledge is delivered in a fun and entertaining way. The family also receives in-home visits to get support on nutrition knowledge, activity time, screen time and BMI for the child / family.

Active Families aims to improve family’s attitudes toward physical activity through fun physical activity experiences as well as introducing them to healthy food options and teach them to make healthy food choices.
