Helping kids be healthy

A NEW service dedicated to supporting young people to make positive and lasting changes for their health and wellbeing is now available to families across Dumfries and Galloway.

It was developed by health professionals including a dietitian and psychologist to provide and safe space to explore aspects of health and wellbeing such as nutrition, movement and sleep.

The new service aims to get to know a family’s life and priorities and enable them to make small changes, contributing to gradual and long term improvements.

Health psychologist Ellen Jardine, said: “Unhealthy options often take centre stage in today’s environment and it can be really hard to make healthy choices for our health and wellbeing – especially for young people.

“The Healthy Child Service is here to support healthy weight management and tackle challenges together, whatever the circumstances.”
