The Why Weight Programme helps support children, young people and their families work towards a healthier weight.
We are working to engage with families to explore with them what help and support they are looking for.
We offer a range of practical programs looking at wellbeing, activity and nutrition and aim to engage families in practical work to support behaviour change.

Cooking at Home Challenge
The Child Healthy Weight team support and encourage children and their families to take part in Cooking At Home Challenges. The challenge is to make 1 main meal once a week, for 6 weeks.
It’s a great way for young people to gain confidence and learn new cooking skills, as well as providing an opportunity for individuals to try new foods and dishes, as well as eating meals together.
Below are some of the recipes and instruction sheets that you will need to take part in the Cooking At Home Challenge:
