Be Your Best - Family Weight Management Programme

Be Your Best is a family weight management programme aimed at Surrey families who have children aged 0-12. Families can join if their child is in the top 10% for BMI and they have SEND or a disability, or the family has a low income.

Families who are enrolled will receive six 1-2-1 visits from a Children & Family Health nurse and be able to attend six online group sessions – to help them understand more about topics ranging from nutrition and portion size to screen time and the need to stay active.

Residents can self-register through the Be Your Best website and receive a follow up call to check eligibility, or health professionals can refer in.

If anyone has any questions they can email or call 01483 517005.
