2. The HENRY 1-to-1 Programme

Intervening effectively when babies and young children are at risk of obesity

The HENRY 1-to-1 Programme applies a solution-focused and strength-based approach to targeted work with families - to protect children from the long-term physical and emotional consequences of obesity and help the whole family adopt a healthier lifestyle.

The HENRY 1-to-1 Programme is supported by a one-day Advanced Training for health and early years practitioners who have already completed the HENRY Core Training. The intervention is underpinned by a set of resources to:

  • explore lifestyle issues
  • develop motivation for change
  • set goals with a family
  • record outcomes and evidence of impact
