What is MEND?

MEND empowers families to adopt a healthier and fitter lifestyle through education and physical activity.

MEND is…

  • A free healthy lifestyle program where families learn about Nutrition and Mind (Behaviour change) principles.
  • A program that helps children make healthier choices with the foods they eat and teaches them why it’s important to be more active.
  • Families participate in group sessions that show how small changes can make a big difference.
  • About improving overall lifestyle by choosing more nutritious foods and being more active, which can increase your child’s self-esteem and self-image.
  • Fun!
  • Free!
  • Up to you!

MEND is not…

  • A diet.
  • About weight loss or appearance.
  • Someone telling you what to do.
