At OneLife Suffolk, we offer a combination of 10-week Family Programmes, School Holiday Clubs, Teen Programmes and In School Programmes, we take an approach that focuses more on the importance of healthy lifestyles, instead of encouraging weight loss, where there are no unrealistic expectations.
10 Week Family Programme
The 10 Week Family programmes, invite the whole family to learn more about the importance of healthy eating and physical activity, supporting you all to set and achieve realistic goals that will see you in achieving a healthier lifestyle that can be maintained. Throughout the 10 – Weeks our team of trained practitioners will deliver a different topic each week.
Week 1 – Why make a change?
Week 2 – Energy balance and healthy eating
Week 3 – Portion control and snacks
Week 4 – Approaching activity
Week 5 – Halfway checkpoint and healthy lunches
Week 6 – Understanding influence and making choices
Week 7 – Food labelling
Week 8 – What’s in my drink?
Week 9 – Special occasions, eating out and healthy breakfasts
Week 10 – Next steps and moving on
Our teen programmes are structured in the same way as the 10-week family programmes, however, they are tailored specifically to the age range.
We do still encourage parents or carers to attend, however, this is not mandatory.
School holiday clubs
The school holiday clubs offer up to 5 days of fun, interactive sessions and physical activity for young people who have a weight above the healthy range and their siblings. Each session runs from 9 – 3 pm throughout the school holidays (Exc. Bank holidays).
All children will receive a manual to take home as well as a bag and water bottle, plus the chance to win prizes.
Whilst at the club the children will learn about healthy lifestyles, the importance of activity, portion sizes, healthy snacks and drinks amongst several other topics that would support them in fulfilling healthier lives.
In School Programmes
Our team deliver topics from the family programmes in schools across the county for up to 6 weeks, supporting the healthy lifestyle and PSHE curriculum. If your child’s class are involved, you would receive a letter from the school which would provide more information.
If you are a teacher and feel your school could benefit from this free programme, please check out our whole school package under the workplace and schools package tab on our homepage.
OneLife Suffolk, do not offer any alternative or additional options for young people, however, once a person reaches the age of 16 years old, they have the choice to access one of our adult programmes.
