Ready Steady Go! (RSG) is a FREE healthy lifestyle after school and weekend club for children above the healthy weight and their families. Since the start, just over 800 families from 17 different cultural backgrounds have entered this programme.
RSG are now looking for families who want to lead healthier lifestyles to take part in the latest programme which begins in September 2019. Statistics from previous programmes have demonstrated the benefits of attending RSG:
- 74% of children who completed the programme saw a decrease in their BMI score
- 69% had improved nutritional uptake
- 64% reported taking part in more physical activity after the programme
According to the National Child Measurement Scheme, in Lambeth, 24% of children in Reception are overweight and obese. By Year 6 this applies to 39% of children. That means almost 2 in 5 children at the age of 10-11 years are overweight or obese.
