"I guess the thing I love most about the program is that a health coach checked in with her regularly showed her how easy it was to include some healthy habits in her week, and they didn't lecture her about it. Nice for me as a parent to have someone else externally reinforce this."

- Ally, Think Eat and Move (Sydney, Australia)

Sign up for Think Eat and Move

Ally: Hi I’m Ally I’ve just completed the Think Eat and Move program with my daughter. I decided to join myself and my
daughter to the Think Eat and Move program because I noticed that she was spending a lot more time on her phone and her iPad and was simply developing some really unhealthy eating habits around snacking. We noticed that as she’s grown into a teenager her want to move and exercise had decreased so I hope that a program like Think Eat and Move could help change some of these habits.

I guess the thing I love most about the program is that a health coach checked in with her regularly showed her how
easy it was to include some healthy habits in her week, and they didn’t lecture her about it nice for me as a parent to have someone else externally reinforce this.

The changes I am proud of my daughter making is that she’s a lot more conscious of what she eats and loves reading labels and checking how much sugar is in things. She’s also taken to walking pretty regularly now with the dog it has been amazing to see how much happier she is within herself. She’s feeling better about herself overall and that flows into so many areas of her life. It was actually interesting the flow on effect of the program my husband and I both made healthy changes during the program too.
We walked more, opted for more water, ate healthier food options like salads with dinner. I think the biggest impact that the Think Eat and Move program had was it felt like my daughter learned things separate from me. She even started lecturing me about healthy habits which is great.

For another parent who is thinking of signing up I’d say do it. You have nothing to lose and so much to gain. The program talks to teenagers and can reach them in ways that really works.

"I joined The Active8 Program with my daughter Evie for extra support during the "fussy eating" phase, but got so much more out of the program than I ever expected."

- Bec and Evie, The Active8 Program (VIC Australia)

Sign up for The Active8 Program

Bec: Hi my name is Bec and this is my daughter Evie and we have done The Activate Program. I decided to join the
Activate Program because I wanted to understand more about healthy eating for my daughter especially as we work through the fussy eating phase. I felt like I really needed some guidance on how to maintain healthy habit.

The part I loved about the program is that the information is simple and easy to understand and was delivered in an engaging and interactive way. The package that we received was great and came in good use I really love the portion measuring cup just to make sure that we’re not under or over serving. One of the things I learned about active play was that you can break it up into smaller segments to fit in with a busy lifestyle it takes the stress and overwhelm out of it and makes it fun for you and your little one. And with healthy eating the information on what is really healthy and not just on face value was really eye openening and taught me not to rely on major claims on packages and to read the food labels.

The changes I am most proud of our family making are checking food packaging to see the levels of fats and sugars. We changed our granola and finding more ways to include healthy eating and active play into our lives by making small and simple changes like using an activity box instead of watching the TV. My fussy eating daughter now tries more foods even if she doesn’t like it we keep offering and she soon starts to try and eat more. Grapes are now one of her favorites yay!

What surprised me most about the program was the support and information available is amazing and you get time to ask a qualified health coach questions that can help you make better choices for your family. To someone who thinks they may be too busy for the program I thought I was too busy for it even though it seems like an added stress it isn’t. It is totally worth it! The self-paced option allows you to work around your schedule and even complete the program bit by bit day by day if you have to. Knowing that I might help my daughter make better choices throughout her life is the best thing I could have asked for.
