National Childhood Obesity Week aims to raise awareness of the dangers of being above a healthy weight during childhood.

Worried about your child’s weight? Want to help them lead a healthy, happy, active life? Then Get Going!


Get Going is a family healthy lifestyle programme being delivered in partnership between NHS Lothian, East Lothian Council and Enjoyleisure.

It offers support to help children aged 5-18, who are overweight, and their parents or carers. The emphasis is on fun and feeling good. It’s about getting active as a family and working together to make small lifestyle changes. Children get the opportunity to make friends and take part in fun,active games. As parents you’ll have the chance to share ideas with support and guidance from a Child Healthy Lifestyle coach.
The sessions are FREE and take place in Enjoy or community venues once a week over eight weeks.  Each week a different topic is covered, from introducing a healthier eating plan, to discussions around physical activity and thinking about the amount of time spent watching television or playing on the computer. After the eight weeks, you’ll get ongoing support from our team. There’s also a follow-up six months after you finish to see how you’re doing and to help you stay on track for a more healthy life.
