All school-aged children throughout Essex have the opportunity to sign up to Our Child Health Improvement Sessions (C.H.I.M.P.S). These sessions empower children and their families to improve their BMI and overall health and wellbeing.

Each week, there will be a different session covering a new behaviour change/topic. Some of these topics include food label reading, me-sized meals, and physical activity.
This course is available via video or telephone, and video downloads or face-to-face at a venue.
