Health, Exercise, Nutrition for the Really Young

What happens in the first few years of a child’s life can shape their whole life.

Everyone wants the best for their children, but it can be hard to know what to do as a parent as they grow up. That’s where Health, Exercise, Nutrition for the Really Young (HENRY) comes in.

The HENRY approach focuses on how you can create a supportive environment for your family, building trust and relationships. Helping you to make changes when you feel you are ready.

HENRY is for any family who is looking to make changes together to make a happier and healthier lifestyle. HENRY is ideal for families who are looking to be more physically active, become a healthier weight, wanting to eat better or who are looking for support with family life.

The HENRY programme is free and offers a 2-hour session for 8 weeks. The session is run by 2 health practitioners and provides free childcare for your child or children. Each week HENRY covers a different topic:

  • changes you want to make
  • how to juggle life with young children
  • how to respond to your child’s needs without giving in to their demands
  • positive mealtimes
  • ideas for active play
  • food groups, food labels and portion sizes
  • understanding your child’s behaviour
  • celebrating your success
