Families can now Ready, Steady, Go!

Ready, Steady, Go! is a new weight management service for children aged 4-11 and their families living in East Sussex.

Ready, Steady, Go! is designed to support children whose weight is likely to cause them health problems now or in the future.

Each programme of Ready, Steady, Go! involves eight, one-hour sessions for children, their parents/carers and other members of the family.

The sessions focus on healthy eating and physical activity but also cover a range of other topics which can impact on a child’s weight, such as sleep and screen time.

Ready, Steady, Go! programmes will take place at different host schools and community venues throughout the year, with the first groups beginning at the end of September 2018 in Hastings, Bexhill, Newhaven, Eastbourne, Hailsham and Heathfield. Families can self-refer into Ready, Steady, Go or be referred by a professional.

The service has been commissioned by East Sussex Public Health and will be delivered by the East Sussex School Health Service.
