What is #NorfolkCan?

#NorfolkCan is a service offered to families, children and young people whose Body Mass Index (BMI) has been measured as outside of the healthy range.

Who is it for?

The service is for those who;

  • Live in Norfolk
  • Aged between 0-19
  • Have a Body Mass Index (BMI) which falls outside of the healthy range

      • Regular contact with a Healthy Lifestyles Coach – this helps develop and strengthen motivation to change.
      • Working together to identify areas for change- support tailored to your families needs.
      • Continued support until the new behaviours become a habit

    • Where you are now where you would like to be
    • What small steps you can take to reach your goal and make a plan which fits your family
    • Review the plan regularly  with you  to see if you are on the right track - or if we need to try something different.
