Let's eat well and exercise.

CHIPPER Club is supporting National Childhood Obesity Week and Move it Week this week to encourage overweight children to eat more healthily and exercise more.

MEND (Mind, Exercise, Nutrition... Do it!) is promoting Move It Week, a nationwide initiative.

During this week, MEND is encouraging families to incorporate six top tips into their everyday life to help them get fitter and healthier, including: Walk an extra 20 minutes every day; include at least one serving of fruit and veg with each meal; try a new exercise or activity this week; start the day with a healthy and filling breakfast; limit the amount of fruit juice you drink, as it contains a lot of sugar; and drink more water.

Discover more at Parents can call 0800 230 0263 for general enquiries about MEND or, if you are interested in signing up your child for a ten-week MEND programme in your local area, call Cat Preston on 01384 322090.
