Healthy Dads, Healthy Kids in Cessnock

UON Professor Philip Morgan’s highly successful obesity prevention program Healthy Dads, Healthy Kids (HDHK) is coming to Cessnock from 14 October.

The program is just for dads and their children, and address issues related to men losing weight in a practical, straight forward manner. Families can learn about the latest information on healthy eating and physical activity, as well as participate in fun physical activities that can be used at home.

The world-first program, that encourages dads to become family role models and spend quality time with their children using exercise and healthy eating as the engagement medium, was awarded the Excellence in Obesity Prevention Award from the World Health Organization (WHO) Collaborating Centre for Obesity Prevention in Australia earlier this year.

HDHK is open to fathers, step dads and grandfathers with primary aged children. The program will be delivered by university trained facilitators for nine weeks. Each session runs for 1.5 hours.

For more information, visit the Healthy Dads, Healthy Kids website.

Register online here for the Cessnock program starting next week.
