New course in Cromer promoting healthy lifestyle
A new course which promotes healthy lifestyle choices for young children has come to north Norfolk.
MEND (Mind, Exercise, Nutrition, Do-it) courses are a free service for seven to 13-year-olds, funded by NHS Norfolk, and delivered by Football in the Community, designed to encourage and support children and their families to adopt a healthier lifestyle.
One of the curses was due to take place at Cromer Junior School on Wednesday, October 6, from 3.45pm to 5.45pm.
Each session consists of an hour covering nutrition followed by an hour of fun-based exercise. A parent or guardian must attend with the child, and courses must be pre-booked.
Toby Nickerson, MEND co-ordinator at Football in the Community, said: 'Children and their families are able to learn about exercise and nutrition which in turn helps to build their confidence and self-esteem.
'The MEND programme is designed to aid changes that help make an incredible difference to children's and their families' lives. It's great to see the children grow in confidence throughout the ten weeks of the course.'
