HENRY is working in partnership with LEAP to provide practical nutrition support in the community to meet the needs of families living in LEAP wards. Our service is tailored to each family’s needs and circumstances.
We provide flexible support and guidance to enable you as a family to become healthier. Support involves interactive Healthy Families workshops on different topics each week including Fussy Eating, Healthy Food Swaps and eating well for less. There are also 1-1 sessions with a registered nutritionist where you can discuss any aspect of family nutrition and we can help you work out what’s best for your family.
The primary objective of the service is to provide healthy lifestyle support to LEAP families with children 0-4 in order to provide babies and children the best start in life. This is to enable parents build confidence and secure the support they need for their families.
Family Nutrition service provides support and guidance to parents so they and their children can eat more healthily feeling supported, motivated and equipped with the skills and strategies to make changes and achieve their goals.
LEAP families are offered enhanced and interactive healthy family’s workshops and 1-1 sessions. They can bring their children along to the session, unless its the Fussy Eating workshop – we suggest this is for parents only.
We encourage parents to attend also meet other parents and avoid isolation. Any LEAP family with child/children aged 0-4 is eligible to attend.
Family Nutrition service offer a free tailored, flexible and personalised service to help families on their family nutrition journey. We support families by respecting, creating a supportive & safer environment and non-judgemental listening where parents feel valued and supported.
We have varied topics for the workshops including ‘Healthy food swaps’ ‘fussy eating’ ‘what’s in our food’ ‘healthy drinks’ ‘eating well for less’ and ‘portion sizes’. There are also group based activities where parents can interact with other parents and share experiences.
As a result of attending the session and 1-to-1 session, parents will gain confidence, knowledge about healthy eating and family nutrition and have any questions, queries or concerns answered.
97% of families who join a HENRY family programme are leading a healthier lifestyle by the programme's end.
Families in LEAP wards of Coldharbour, Vassal, Tulse hill and Stockwell are welcome to workshops and 1-1 sessions.
