Five 60

Five60

Five60 is a healthy eating and physical activity programme that is designed to increase physical activity, raise awareness and knowledge of nutrition choices and improve emotional well-being.

The main aim of the programme is to promote and encourage physical activity through increasing understanding and knowledge of the benefits of healthy eating. This is achieved through practical sessions delivered to primary school pupils.

At the Chesterfield School Sport Partnership we are targeting Year 3 pupils during the 2015/16 academic year, linking the Five60 programme to our Change 4 Life and Active Families sessions.
