Childhood obesity in Lincolnshire is increasing by one per cent every year. Families in East Lindsey are now taking part in 10-week courses to learn about nutrition and health.

They are aimed at helping those in deprived areas with children aged between four and twelve.

Children will attend physical activity sessions twice a week with parents attending sessions once a week to learn more about nutrition and the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
