Grow Well Choices

The Grow Well Choices programme has been developed to help tackle the increasing issue of children who are not maintaining a healthy weight. The programme is run in Grampian primary schools with children from P 5-7 classes. It is delivered over eight weeks with one session per week each lasting one hour and the sessions are run entirely in a gym or games hall.

The programme aims to educate children about healthier lifestyle choices and the importance of being healthy through activities and games sessions.

Here is a copy of the Grow Well Choices Teacher’s Pack which is designed to provide school staff with information to support the delivery of Grow Well Choices
