Go4Fun is a FREE healthy lifestyles program for children who are aged between 7-13 and above their ideal weight funded by NSW Health

With an emphasis on practical, fun learning the program is designed to deliver sustained improvements in families diet, fitness levels and overall health.

The program runs for 10 weeks alongside the school term and is delivered twice a week for two hours - the first hour consisting of interactive discussions and activities about nutrition and behaviour change. With the second hour alternating between land and water games based exercise. Go4Fun encourages a family approach and as such a parent or a carer must attend all sessions with the child. Go4Fun is completely free for children and families to attend and the sessions are run after school. Go4Fun is not a diet and does not encourage rapid weight loss in children, rather it is about empowerment – putting the child at the centre of a range of ways to make healthy lifestyle changes in terms of physical activity, food, self-confidence and personal development. By following the Go4Fun principles, participants will lose weight naturally and thereby build a foundation for healthy living – for life.

The next Go4Fun program begins on Wednesday 11 October from 4.30pm till 6.40pm at Willoughby Park Centre, Cnr McClelland St & Warrane Rd, Willoughby.

I would encourage anyone who believes a family would benefit to call 1200 780 900 or visit Go4Fun.com.au to get more information or register a child.
