Change4life (Childhood obesity) - (NELFT - NHS Foundation Trust)

8am - 5pm, Monday to Friday

Change4Life is a national movement aiming to encourage people to “Eat well. Move more. Live Longer”.

Our local Change4Life team coordinates Time4life programmes (Key Stage1 - Little Dudes and Key Stage 2 - Fresh! and Superkids) which are prevention and treatment programmes for families with a child above a healthy weight.

Reception year and year 6 children are weighed and measured to check their growth via the National Child Measurement Programme (NCMP). This is coordinated by the Change4Life team.

NELFT is committed to implementing the Community Baby Friendly Initiative (BFI). All NELFT staff receive training to raise their awareness around infant feeding and to ensure they know what advice to give to families regarding their feeding choice (appropriate to their remit). The initiative ensures that mothers and babies receive a high standard of care in relation to infant feeding. In January 2015 NELFT Essex achieved BFI full acreditation. (See www.unicef.org.uk/babyfriendly for more information.)

We also offer expert advice, capacity building through training, and support for local partners around childhood obesity (healthy eating, physical activity and behaviour change for families).
