Think, Eat and Move Program- Free Online healthy lifestyle program for Teens and their families
7 March, 2022
Think, Eat and Move (TEAM) is a free healthy lifestyle program for adolescents that are above a healthy weight, have a chronic health condition, or demonstrate increased risk of diet and lifestyle disease.
TEAM is delivered by Better Health Company in partnership with Central and Eastern Sydney Primary Health Network (CESPHN). The TEAM program is developed by health professionals and aligns with the Australian Dietary Guidelines and the Australian 24 hour movement guidelines.
Across eight weeks, adolescents learn about healthy eating, physical activity and behaviour change through interactive modules and activities. Participants also receive weekly health coaching calls with a qualified health professional.
Results demonstrate that the TEAM program has positive outcomes for participating adolescents, with significant improvements in daily fruit and vegetable intake, physical activity, reduced sugary drink intake and screen time. As the program is evidence based it is designed to complement any patient care you offer. A referral or recommendation from a trusted source, such as a GP, is often the motivation needed for a teen to join the TEAM program.
There is a direct referral pathway available to health professionals via Best Practice and Medical Director software, or you can access the interactive referral form on the website here. Programs run almost every 6 weeks with the next beginning 11 March 2022.
