Find out about Healthy weight support for children, young people and families in North Yorkshire.
We are currently working in a number of ways to support children, young people and families in North Yorkshire with healthy weight and healthy lifestyles. We work with schools to help them to be ‘healthy schools’ and we are developing healthy packed lunch guidance.
We are also working with Leeds Beckett University on a research project to develop and test a digital and remote weight management service for families in North Yorkshire called Back2Basics. If you are interested in taking part in the trial, please email Back2Basics@northyorks.gov.uk.
