FAB (Food, Activity & Behaviour) for Dorset Food and Health Trust

- Course development, piloting and subsequent training for staff in children's centres

The aim of the pre-school intervention development and piloting was to improve the awareness and knowledge of key healthy lifestyle messages aimed at children aged 2-4 years and their families, in order to prevent childhood obesity.  

 

FAB (Food, Activity & Behaviour), a five week course for one hour a week was researched and developed.  The course incorporates the lifestyle messages around healthy eating, behaviour changes, physical activity and reducing sedentary behaviour relevant to preschoolers and their families.  Practical activities include healthy eating, portion sizes, tools for working with fussy eaters, physical activities, using music for activity, cooking together and non-TV activities for toddlers.
