NHS Ayrshire & Arran has recently developed a free 'Healthy Weight Ayrshire' app to help the whole family achieve a healthy weight.

This app provides information on a number of topics which are helpfully broken down into the following sections: early years 1-5, child healthy weight, adult weight management.

Dr Ruth Campbell, Consultant Dietitian, said; “We have had lots of very positive feedback so far with those using it enjoying the full family aspect and taking part in physical activity challenges.

“It offers an opportunity to access services and information and encourages both kids and adults to engage and have conversations about the importance of physical activity and eating well."

“This can be especially important for those who are anxious or concerned about discussing these issues and it may be a helpful starting point until our programmes resume face to face.”

If you would like to access the app then search your app store for NHS Ayrshire & Arran and select Healthy Weight Ayrshire.
