Healthy Families: Right from the Start with Henry

What is henry?

Henry is an 8 week programme that can support you with ensuring a healthy start for your child. Every parent that joins the programme learns something new and useful about providing healthy lifestyles for their children.

Children can make mealtimes feel stressful and providing healthy lifestyles for them can be challenging. Henry helps to overcome those challenges so you can have a happy and healthy family life.

If you have at least one child under 5 years old and can answer yes to any of the questions below then HENRY is for you:

  • Do you find mealtimes stressful?
  • Would you like some support to give your child a healthy start?
  • Do you wish your child would eat more fruit and vegetables?
  • Would you like to enjoy being active together as a family more often?
  • Are you interested in some ideas to get children away from the TV?

What does the programme involve?

The programme covers everything you need to help get your little ones off to a great start. There are 8 weekly sessions, each lasting 2 hours with an optional extra week for family time. Every parent joining a Henry programme receives a free Henry toolkit which includes everything you need for the programme including children’s books and other fun resources.

There are taster sessions available before the programme starts so you can see what the programme is like before you join, meet other parents taking part and ask any questions you may have.

Sessions are term time only. To get the most for the programme we recommend attending all 8 sessions.

Partners are welcome. It’s also fine to come on your own or with another relative or friend – just mention this when you book your place.
