“My son was struggling with bullying and fat shaming, the school recommended these sessions which have helped his confidence 100% and also the way he eats. I would 100% recommend this , the people are so friendly and the sessions are fun.”

“The information provided during the course has been really interesting and helpful, my boys are certainly more educated on all aspects of food which is allowing them to make healthier choices in their day to day life.”

Katy

East Sussex

“My son has learnt so much from nutrition, portion sizes, sleep, hydration and exercise which will all be very valuable to him as he grows. To any parent who needs a bit of support with any of these areas I really can’t recommend the programme enough.”

Hannah

East Sussex

“We loved the Healthy Habits programme.  I was anxious about signing up because I felt like I had really failed my son - I could see he was unhappy about his weight, and it was affecting his ability to play with the other children at school.  He really wanted a change, but I felt overwhelmed at how to make that change and embarrassed that I needed help. The Healthy Habits team were incredibly supportive, non judgemental and clearly just wanted to help us all - there was no pressure.”
