A new free healthy lifestyle program called PEACH™ – Parenting, Eating and Activity for Child Health – is commencing Term 3, for Hinterland families.
It is available to families who have a child aged 5-11 years who is above a healthy weight for their age. The program takes a family-focused approach by helping parents and carers make healthy eating and activity a part of every-day life.
It is a group program running for 10 weeks on a Monday or Thursday (TBC) afternoon from 3:30- 5pm commencing Term 3. Ongoing individualised family support is offered through the second half of the program ending with one final group session.
Some of the topics covered include nutrition skills, relationships with food and eating, changing family lifestyle behaviours and making healthy eating affordable. While the parent sessions are taking place, children enjoy active play with a trained child physical activity facilitator.
The program is funded by the Queensland government and being delivered in your area by the Child Healthy Weight Team from the Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service.
Limited spots are available for each program. If you would like to reserve a spot on the next program please call 1800 263 519 or 5450 4766 or visit www.peachqld.com.au for more information
