Obesity (including Physical Activity and Nutrition)

ACES

Inverclyde Leisure in partnership with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde and Inverclyde Community Health and Care Partnership are pleased to deliver the Active Children Eat Smart (ACES) Programme.

The main aim of the ACES programme is to assist children and young people, in cooperation with their families, to either lose weight or not gain further weight. Each session has been designed with practical solutions in mind to help families make changes and become more active and ultimately, eat more healthily. Some weeks involve practical food sessions but there are also games and activities every week too.

  • Each session lasts approximately 90 minutes
  • Sessions take place with groups of children or young people of similar age ranges
  • Our ACES coaches are very experienced working with children and young people
  • Most importantly, ACES is free!

If you and your family are interested in coming along to ACES please contact 01475 213136 to arrange a one to one appointment.
