FREE nutrition and exercise classes are on offer to Daventry kids starting in the new year.

The 10-week MEND (Mind, Exercise, Nutrition...Do it!) programme, held at Daventry Leisure Centre from January will help families get a healthy start to 2012 by giving them top tips on how to eat more healthily and keep active.

At the after-school MEND programme, children aged 7-13 years and their parents learn about healthy eating together. The kids then play fun active games while the parents learn how to set healthy goals and rewards and swap ideas and tips with other parents.
