Worried about your child's weight? Want to help them lead a healthy, happy, active life? The let's Get Going!

Get Going is a new family healthy lifestyle programme funded by NHS Lothian. It offers support to help your child get active, eat well and achieve a healthier weight.

The emphasis is on fun and feeling good. It's about getting active as a family and working together to make small lifestyle changes. Children get the opportunity to make friends and take part in fun active games. As a parent you'll have the chance to share ideas with support and guidance from a Child Healthy Lifestyle coach.

The free sessions take place in Leisure or Community venues once a week over 8 weeks. Each lasts between 60-90 minutes.

After the eight weeks you'll get ongoing support from our team. There's also a follow-up six months after you finish to see how you're doing and to help stay on track for a more healthy life.

Download the Get Going PDF for more information.
