After School Health Hubs for kids
We provide a small professional expert team consisting of a nutritionist, personal trainer and dental nurse who deliver 1 hour fun packed engaging workshops to both primary and secondary children.
Our workshops inspire children to take a close look at what they are eating, its impact on their future health, and what action they can take to ensure they live the healthiest lifestyle they can.
Our workshops provide extra support to the school in helping to embed the Change 4 Life message that reduces the risk of developing lifestyle related diseases such as Type 2 Diabetes and Obesity.
SugarFIT Workshops are bespoke and can be tailored to match the needs of the school and the learning ability of the class.
