IN Northern Ireland Slimming World has successfully helped 25,000 members, which has also had a healthy effect on all of their families.
In recent health and lifestyle reports it has been stated that a significant percentage of young people in Northern Ireland are overweight or obese.
Help is at hand at your local Slimming World group, where young people aged between 11 and 15 can attend groups for free if they are accompanied by a paying parent or guardian.
Slimming World Consultant Gretchen Mone says, “Slimming World plans are very easy to follow and in light of the credit crunch we are encouraging our members to use healthy affordable foods which are great value for money.
“Slimming World members can create healthy affordable meals for the whole family, whilst our young members can choose healthy swaps for those favourite take-away meals.
“With the growing number of children bursting through the size barrier it is our responsibility as parents or guardians to make the changes at home. We have to put steps in place to help our young children live healthy and long lives.
“At Slimming World we are very proud of our young members in the group. Our young members are enjoying eating healthily, feeling great and are more confident in themselves.
“So why not make it a family affair and join Slimming World today?”
