Gloji Energy is a new child weight management programme ran by Achieve Oxfordshire. This exciting new 12-week programme is fully funded by Oxfordshire County Council and therefore a free programme for children and their parents/carers. Gloji Energy will be accessible to children aged 4-12 years old who have a BMI over the 91st Centile. There will be both group and one to one sessions available, dependant on the needs of each family. Gloji Energy aims to create healthier children and families by supporting them to become more active and eat well.
The sessions will be 1 hour long which will involve 45 minutes of physical activity for the children whilst the parents/carers learn about nutrition and healthy habits with our team of expert practitioners.
Parents/carers can expect to learn things including portion sizes, snacking habits, children’s nutritional requirements and so much more. During this time children will engage in fun interactive sessions which will include things such as trampolining, dance, martial arts, and dodgeball.
The remaining 15 minutes will be an interactive activity for the whole family.
Ongoing support from our team of child weight management practitioners.
