Leicester Tigers run classes encouraging schoolchildren to lead healthier lifestyles

Leicester Tigers are running classes encouraging local schoolchildren to lead healthier lifestyles and help combat childhood obesity.

They are among a number of sports clubs using pupil's love of their local team to deliver nutrition and exercise-based workshops.

As soon as you walk in, you hear kids saying 'Tigers, Tigers, Tigers!'

They love it, so you can just tell them anything because whatever you say is gold dust.

Overall there's definitely a good understanding, but some are more up there than others.

I think it just depends on how fun they make it, because kids always love having fun. So you put stuff into that and you're winning. They love it.

– Ashleigh Theobald, Health Education Officer, Leicester Tigers.
