Green Prescription is an individual programme for adults 18 years to senior who are not currently meeting the recommended 150 minutes per week of physical activity. The main goal is to enhance overall lifestyle by increasing physical activity and improving healthy food choices.

Adults are referred to this programme by a health professional who feels that their health would benefit from increased physical activity and/or healthy eating advice. This programme is suitable for people with a variety of medical conditions, those with poor strength and balance or for those wishing to work on general wellbeing. Adults are also most welcome to self-refer.

Active & Well staff will offer support every four weeks for 3-6 months to keep up the lifestyle changes made to live happy and healthy lives.

Green Prescription 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 greenprescription@sportwaikato.org.nz
