‘Foodwise for Life’ is a FREE eight week structured programme which utilises evidence based approaches to weight management. Written by Public Health Dietitians in Wales (PHDiW) the programme is designed to be delivered by a range of community based staff and contributes towards activity at Levels 1 and 2 of the Welsh Government ‘All Wales Obesity Pathway’. It will particularly benefit individuals with a Body Mass Index > 25kg/m2. It is not intended to replace structured education/care provided by health professionals for those with specific medical conditions such as diabetes.

 

‘Foodwise for Life’ is part of a wider programme, NUTRITION SKILLS FOR LIFETM, which aims to train and develop the nutrition skills of a wide range of community workers, build on existing local partnerships, and maximise workforce capacity to deliver quality assured healthy eating advice in community settings.

 

Topics focus on adapting eating habits, increasing physical activity and using basic behaviour change strategies to facilitate weight loss. Each session consists of structured discussions, hands on learning, group work and activities where participants can learn more about portion sizes, food labelling, daily exercise, recipe swaps and longer term plans for weight management. Group members are provided with a programme handbook and supporting literature from the Change4Life Campaign.

 

The first 8 week programme starts on 9th October 2017 and finishes on 27th November 2017. The next 8 week programme will start in January 2018 (keep a check here or/and on our facebook page for the date closer to the time), there are only 10 spaces per 8 week programme, so make sure you book in on 01656 645480.
