Children's Weight Management Groups


The Leicestershire Nutrition and Dietetic Service offer FLiC, a Family Lifestyle Club.   FLiC is run by Dietitians and local Council Physical Activity leaders.  It is an 8-week programme (meeting once each week) for children aged 8-13 years and their families, offering support and information about weight management.  Each week will involve some fun active games for the children lead by the Physical Activity Co-ordinator.  Whilst the children are involved in active games, there will be a topic based discussion for parents led by a Dietitian.  At the end of each session children and parents get back together to take part in a fun, informative and tasting/food preparation session.

Groups start in January, May and October each year in a number of locations in Leicester City.
