About the Healthy Kidsprogram

Go4Fun is a healthy lifestyle program to improve health, fitness and self-esteem in children above their ideal weight.

The program involves:

  • weekly games and activities for children.
  • fun, interactive discussions to teach you easy and effective ways to improve children’s nutrition, physical activity and self-esteem.
  • practical demonstrations, games and tips about healthy foods, label reading and portion sizes.

Use the body mass index (BMI) calculator to find out if your child is at a healthy weight range.


How it works

  • There are 10 sessions, run once per week over one school term.
  • Sessions run after school, which are facilitated by qualified dietitians, nutritionists, exercise physiologists, physiotherapists, fitness leaders, community nurses and health promotion staff.
  • Each session includes theory for the parents and children together, physical activity for the children and a facilitated discussion for parents (while the children exercise).

The following elements are essential to Go4Fun:

  • family involvement
  • practical education in nutrition and diet
  • increasing physical activity
  • behaviour change.



Go4Fun is based on the MEND (Mind Exercise Nutrition Do it) program from the United Kingdom, which has been running for nine years.

Results have included:

  • a reduction in waist circumference and BMI (Body Mass Index)
  • an increase in fitness and self esteem
  • an improvement in the number of hours spent
  • physically active and in sedentary activity.
