About Us

A free and fun family-based programme focusing on learning about choosing healthier foods, being more active, achieving and maintaining a healthy weight.

Family, food and fun is a new programme which has been developed in Bristol through a partnership between Bristol City Council and NHS Bristol in response to feedback from local families for a programme which runs once a week.

What happens on the programme?

A parent or carer attends each session with their child.

Sessions last 1.5 hours and consist of:

* 30 minutes of parents and children learning about healthy lifestyles
* 30 minutes of parents and children doing fun activities about healthy lifestyles
* 30 minutes of childrens’ games/sports whilst parents have a group discussion session.

Who is it for?

Any family who has a child aged between 5 and 14 years old and is concerned about their weight, eating and lifestyle habits.

For example:

* Does your child wear clothes that are for children aged older than them?
* Do they watch TV/play on the computer for more than two hours a day?
* Do they snack regularly on unhealthy foods: Eat a packet of crisps/chocolate bar/sweets more than a couple of times a week?
* Do they do less than an hour of physical activity a day (outside of school)?
* Do you as a family feel that you struggle to eat a healthy diet?

When and where does it take place?

We will be running term time and holiday programmes.

Term time programmes run once per week for an hour and a half, this could be early evening or on the weekend and last for 10 weeks. Holiday programmes will have a different format.

We are working with community organisations and sports centres across Bristol.
