The NutriFit Kidz Mission
To encourage, motivate and inspire children to develop healthy lifestyle habits
The NutriFit Kidz programme brings together aspects of outstanding teaching practice coupled with a wealth of experience in the fitness and nutrition industry.
I gained my qualified teacher status (QTS) in 2005 and have over 10 years’ experience as a teacher, teacher-trainer and lecturer working in the Secondary and Further Education sector.
I am passionate about educating children from an early age helping to outline the benefits of adopting healthy lifestyle habits. With this in mind, I have built up a team using industry professionals: fitness instructors, nutrition advisors and lifestyle coaches to help assist teaching staff in delivering up-to-date fitness and nutrition knowledge to all students.
All members of the team hold fully recognised qualifications alongside DBS and insurance certificates.
The NutriFit Kidz programme is designed to support the curriculum providing a range of cross-curricular links, including core subjects such as literacy, numeracy and science. It can be integrated as part of the current personal, social and health skills programme or as an additional enrichment activity. The programme is delivered by qualified fitness and nutrition professionals over a 6-8 week period to fit in with term timetables. (Bespoke packages may also be tailored to suit individual requirements).
All students will be issued their own personal ‘NutriFit Kidz’ booklet to act as a study guide and motivational tool throughout the programme. This will include: interactive activities to encourage learning beyond the classroom; diary templates to record additional fitness and enrichment activities; food journals and ‘healthy’ nutrition hints & tips; goal setting and target attainment records enabling students to monitor their own performance whilst also encouraging feedback from the parents/guardians.
