Green Prescription TEENS is a programme for young people aged 13-17 years. The main goal is to increase physical activity and assist with healthy food choices.

Teens are referred to this programme by a health professional who feels that their health would benefit from increased physical activity or basic advice on food choices. Through the TEENS programme, Active & Well staff will create goals with the teen around healthy everyday meals and snacks, and plan to increase physical activity with local or home-based exercise options.

Active & Well staff will meet initially with the teen and their family and every four weeks make further contact for a 3-6 month period to offer support to sustain and reflect on the healthy lifestyle changes made.

Green Prescription TEENS is a programme which is funded by the Waikato District Health Board. If you would like more information regarding this programme, please email or phone the Active & Well team at Sport Waikato 07 858 5388
