Free BeeZee Bodies programme supports healthy habits

8 August 2022

Families across Thurrock can take healthy steps to improve their lifestyle and stay fitter for longer by joining the award-winning BeeZee Bodies programme.

The free 12-week programme, launching this September, provides access to simple eating advice and fun interactive sessions. It will help families take simple steps toward a healthier lifestyle now, which in turn can help prevent health issues later in life.

Cllr Deborah Huelin, Cabinet Member for Health, said: "Eating healthily and living an active lifestyle can be as fun and exciting as you make it. The BeeZee Bodies programme offers a great, free opportunity whereby families can discover delicious meals and how building simple things into their lives can help them live healthier.

"With expert nutritionists on hand throughout the programme to help you find healthy solutions, there is a whole host of support available, completely free of charge. At a time when access to high sugar and high calorie foods and drinks can make it challenging, Beezee Bodies focuses on promoting a balanced lifestyle that is simple and easy to follow."

The next 12-week BeeZee Bodies programme launches on Monday 26 September 2022, with applications now open online – go to BeeZee Bodies: book your family's free place. Residents that sign-up ahead of the launch can access a number of one-to-one support sessions and free online resources via the BeeZee Bodies website.

The council's own Thurrock Healthy Lifestyle Service is also on hand to help with free advice and support on weight management, stopping smoking and other aspects of healthy living.
