Chilliwack/Victoria – The Family Healthy Living program has been designed for families with children aged 8 to 12-years-old who are off the healthy weight trajectory, meaning their Body Mass Index (BMI) for age is above the 85th percentile.
This program will be at the Chilliwack Neighbourhood Learning Centre on Wednesdays. The Centre is located within Chilliwack Senior Secondary School. See poster below for more details.
The Family Healthy Living Program is a FREE, family-based 10 week program held in communities across B.C. beginning in the Fall of 2018.
The program will support you in making family changes to healthy behaviours such as healthy eating, physical activity, screen time and sleep that support your child’s own health behaviours. The program is focused on practical, fun activities that build family connectedness while building both the parent/caregiver’s and the child’s skills to make lasting changes. As well, the program incorporates positive mental health activities that build resilience and self confidence and help to enhance overall well-being.
