XPLORE is aimed at children and young people, aged 4–19 years, who are above a healthy weight. The joint partnership between Better and the Royal Borough of Greenwich helps young people and their families become fitter, healthier and more active.

The programme includes healthy eating workshops, physical activity sessions and a parent/carer discussion group. The physical activity sessions are designed to be fun and suitable for all abilities. The programme gives lots of handy tips around healthy eating and activity so families can try new things to improve their health and wellbeing within their everyday lives to improve health and wellbeing.
