We offer a six month programme of appointments with dietitians to support children and young people to become a healthier weight.
The programme includes -
- Practical ideas for healthy eating

Your first appointment -
Your first appointment will be an initial assessment where we will discuss how you feel about your child's weight, what things you have already tried and how ready you feel to make changes. This appointment will last about 40 minutes. Although we do not focus on weight, we will ask to measure weight and height at this appointment, you do not have to agree to this.
