Cornwall Healthy Weight has been running since April 2012. We pride ourselves on running professional, fun, friendly and educational programmes for people all over Cornwall.
We are part of Cornwall Health Promotion Service, offering support for both individuals and groups. Our aim is to improve the health and wellbeing of the population of Cornwall by actively promoting and supporting increased physical activity, healthy eating and effective weight management with individuals of all ages.
All the activities we deliver are planned and tailored to suit you and your family and we aim to adapt our sessions to fit your needs, so if you are worried about anything at all or if there is something specific you would like us to cover, please let us know in advance.
Healthy Weight 4-7 is our healthy lifestyle programme for 4 to 7 year olds who are above a healthy weight. It is essential that at least one parent/guardian attends this programme with your children, but all family members are invited and encouraged to attend, together.
Eating well in pregnancy, as well as staying active, are the most important things you can do to give your baby the best start in life. It will help your baby develop and grow and can help you feel your best too. Also, keeping active and fit during pregnancy will make it easier for you to adapt to your changing shape and weight gain. It will also help you cope with labour and to get back into shape after the birth.
There is a growing body of research to suggest that weight management in pregnancy for overweight and obese women can be beneficial and reduce the risk of complications. However, excessive dieting is not recommended as it may be harmful.
