The Start programme is free and uses a combination of healthy eating, physical activity and behavior change to teach children and their families how to live a healthier life. All children and their families enrolled on the Start programme will receive one to one support in order to assist them in setting goals and educating them on how to achieve a happy and healthy lifestyle. These families will also receive a discount on some activities for example Teen Gym and swimming at Kirklees Active Leisure Sports Centre’s. By enrolling on Start, families are also able to access healthy lifestyle programmes such as; MEND 5-7 and MEND 7-13.

Step 1: With the back of a butter knife, crack an egg into a bowl by giving it a firm tap close to the top of the egg!

Step 2: Carefully separate the two parts of the shell and ask an adult to give the larger part a good wash

Step 3: Wet a piece of kitchen roll then screw it up inside the shell.

Step 4: Next, wet a thin piece of cotton wool and put this on top of the kitchen roll.

Coming this September!!

Family Active Location: Whitcliffe Mount Sports Centre Age: 8-16 years (8-13 years must be accompanied by a parent/carer, 14-16 optional) Activities include: SHOKK combat, rebound, circuits, dodgeball and many other activities Cost: Free

Step 5: Scatter a layer of cress seeds on top of the cotton wool then sprinkle some water on top.

Step 8: As your cress starts to grow, draw a face on each shell.

Step 9: Once the cress is about 5cm tall (in about a week), snip it off with some clean scissors.
