Healthy Weight Support Programme.
This is a bespoke Nottingham City Care programme, designed to help parents/carers enable their children to achieve a more healthy weight. Four interventions/contacts are made with the family over a throe month period by myself and the Community Public Health Nursing Team. These interventions identify changes which could be made to the diet and to the levels of physical activity being undertaken by the child/young person. Children/young people aged 5-16 years in Nottingham City need to have a BMI on or above the 98 centile to he eligible to join the Healthy Weight Support Programme.
