Children and young people - Health and Wellbeing

Sign up for Ready Steady Go, a completely free family lifestyle programme dedicated to helping children, parents and carers work together to achieve a healthier diet and a more active lifestyle.

Ready Steady Go is a fun and interactive after school programme, aimed at families with children between the ages of 4-12 years who want to get down to their healthy weight. To be eligible for the programme, your child needs to live, go to school or be registered with a GP in Lambeth.

How long is the programme?

The programme runs for 10 – 12 weeks and each session is 2 hours in duration. This is made up of a family nutrition workshop followed by a group discussion for the adults and physical activity for the children.

What will we learn?

We cover nutritional topics including:

  • how to identify hidden Fats and Sugars
  • ways of increasing your Five a Day fruit and vegetable intake
  • how to read food labelling
  • help with fussy eating
  • appropriate portion sizes for adults and children.

Make your weekly supermarket shop healthier and cheaper

We visit a supermarket to look at a weekly shop and advise on how to help make it healthier and more affordable. Our aim is to help you and your family live happier, healthier lives for longer!
