Be Your Best, Surrey's free healthy lifestyle programme for families

Be Your Best is a children's weight management programme with a difference, we offer families judgement-free support to make small changes to improve each child's complete physical and mental wellbeing. Families who enrol on the programme receive tailored one-to-one sessions from one of our experts, alongside online group sessions.

These cover a wide range of topics including portion size, managing screen time, encouraging movement, positive body image and much more. There are even online cook-alongs where parents and children can learn to prepare nutritious meals together and fun, active 'Family FIT' sessions – all free of charge.

How can it help?
