REACH (Re-thinking Eating and Activity for Children’s Health) is a weekly programme for the whole family which encourages children and their parents to become fitter, healthier and happier by helping them make gradual changes to the food they eat and the physical activity they take.

Funded by us and NHS South Gloucestershire, the scheme is free to join and features fun physical activity sessions for families along with healthy eating activities, recipes and support.

Leaders will guide families through a course of fun and engaging healthy eating activities such as making and trying out new recipes, ideas for healthy snacks, a guide to food labelling, and fun games such as dodge ball and exercise activity sessions.

The programme runs for a total of 10 weeks and can help young people aged seven to 11 gain confidence and make new friends.

REACH courses starting in April include:

Every Tuesday, starting on April 29 at St Stephen’s School in Kingswood, from 5.30pm to 7.30pm.

Every Tuesday (from 29 April), at St Michael’s Primary School in Stoke Gifford, from 5.30pm to 7.30pm

Every Wednesday (from 30 April) at Woodlands Primary School in Yate, from 5pm to 7pm.
