A NEW free healthy lifestyle programme for children aged between five and seven launches in Orford later this month.

The MEND programme (Mind, Exercise, Nutrition…Do It!) will be held at the Orford Jubilee Neighbourhood Hub from Wednesday, February 27.

During the course children try new healthy snacks and take part in fun games and activities, while parents learn new ways to play with their child, how to stop temper tantrums and encourage healthy behaviour.

Places are limited so if you think your child is above a healthy weight and you would like to register your family for the MEND programme call Norah on 442137 or 815468.
