Best Foot Forward Programme

Best Foot Forward is a free family healthy lifestyle programme which supports children to work towards a healthy weight in partnership with Active Schools and NHS Tayside. 

It's about working together as a family to make small lifestyle changes.

Supported by a trained coach, you'll learn more about eating well and being more active. Children will get the opportunity to take part in fun, active games, while parents share ideas and experiences.  

How does it work? 

  • 8 sessions, taking place at school in form of a extra-curricular club within the gym hall or community room once a week. 

  • Working with the School & Family Development Workers, families will start with a 1-1 consultation. 

  • This is followed by a series of interactive group sessions. 

  • Each week a different topic is covered, from introducing a healthier eating plan, to discussions around physical activity and thinking about the amount of time spent watching television or playing on the computer. 

How do you get involved? 

Contact your local Active Schools Coordinator or your child’s School & Family Development Worker to find out more.
