BeeZee Bodies

Weight Management Programme

Bedford Borough Council’s BeeZee Bodies is an NHS Bedfordshire funded family involvement, weight management programme.  The course is aimed at children aged 7-15 years of age and their families and it runs at Pilgrims Pre-Prep School in Bedford.

 

Last week, 23 families from across the borough graduated, after completing the 18 week BeeZee Bodies plan.

 

Cllr Colleen Atkins, Portfolio Holder for Community Wellbeing at Bedford Borough Council, said: “One of the Council’s wellbeing priorities is healthy weight for children and adults. If you think that your child might be overweight and want support in a fun, informative environment then BeeZee Bodies could be for you and your family.

 

BeeZee Bodies is a life-changing programme. Those that take part express a marked difference in their outlook to their eating habits and exercise routines, and they highly recommend the course to others. Feedback from one person stated that the course introduces small changes that will, if people stick to them, go on to make big differences.”

 

Participants gain tips on preparing healthy take-aways, snack and lunchbox ideas with discussions on how to serve suitable portions. Individuals also gain experience in activities including pioneering, swimming, dodgeball and street dance activities.

 

If you, your friends, or family, are interested in enrolling on the next BeeZee Bodies programme, contact Helen Mayhew on 01234 227276 or email helen.mayhew@bedford.gov.uk
