Active Families

Active Families is a programme for children aged 5-12 years. 

Children are referred to this programme by a health professional who feels that the child’s health would benefit from increased physical activity in the family setting. When we receive the referral, Active & Well staff will work with the family in creating goals to increase physical activity, and make healthy food choices. 

Active & Well staff will meet with the family once a month for up to a year, and will support them to keep up the lifestyle changes made to live happy and healthy lives.

Active Families also works alongside the more intensive Bodywise programme which is funded by the Waikato District Health Board. If you would like more information regarding either programme, or are at all concerned about your child’s activity levels, email or phone Mandy at Sport Waikato 07 858 5388
