Everyone wants the best for their children, but it can be hard to know what to do as a parent in the early years. That’s where HENRY comes in. The HENRY programme is free to join and helps you give your child the best possible start in life.
The programme is for parents or carers of children aged 0 to 5 years old. It is free to join.
The HENRY Healthy Families: Right from the Start programme is running locally.
Research shows that the key ingredients to ensuring babies and young children have a healthy start in life are:
- Parenting confidence
- Physical activity for little ones
- What children and families eat
- Family lifestyle habits
- Enjoying life as a family
The programme covers these 5 themes across 8 weeks and provides everything you need to help get your little one off to a great start.
Week 1 – Decide what changes you want to make and set your own goals
Week 2 – How to juggle life with young children so you all get what you need
Week 3 – How to respond to children’s needs without giving in to all their demands
Week 4 – Positive mealtime tips for a happy family – reducing mealtime stress for everyone
Week 5 – Ideas for active play to help children learn, develop and stay happy
