NHS ALFIE Healthy Families Program

The ALFIE program provides fun and informative nutrition based interactive workshops combined with physical activity.

We cover topics such as the eat well guide, portion sizes, label reading and fats and sugars which is always followed up with different sporty challenges, exercises classes or interactive games.

The Healthy Weight Team deliver a range of ALFIE healthy lifestyle programs to support children aged 5 – 16 years and families to be healthier and fitter.

The ALFIE 5-13 program is a multi-component 10-week weight management program focusing on motivating children and the whole family to explore healthier lifestyle choices together, by showing them how even making small changes can make a big difference. The sessions are based around fun and interactive workshops on healthy eating and nutrition, covering topics such as food groups, portion sizes and label reading. Children and families also take part in physical activities such as multi-skilled sports, Junior Gym and HIIT classes; these sessions help improve fitness and build confidence in a safe / structured environment.

The new ALFIE Teen program for those aged 14-16 years is now up and running. The combination of an instructed gym session & a nutrition/wellbeing workshop is a great way to boost the confidence and knowledge of teenagers. The 6-week program is eligible to all teens looking to improve their health & wellbeing and includes topics such as portions sizes, sugars, mindful eating & body image.

Our next programs start in January 2023. The program is free of charge and will take place face to face across Ealing borough. We accept all referrals, for more information please contact the team on [email protected].
