What is TEAM Kids?

Think, Eat and Move (TEAM) is a 10 week healthy lifestyle program for children aged 7-13 years who are above a healthy weight, and their families.


The TEAM Kids program has been designed by specialist health professionals to support individuals and families to improve their physical activity levels and eating habits in a fun, practical way. Through fun and interactive weekly online sessions, the program children learn about healthy eating and the importance of being active.


On top of your weekly online session and activities, you’ll get a call each week from your very own health coach! A trained health professional who can help answer your questions or help you through any challenges you might be having.


We’ll send you lots of resources along the way to help and support you. You’ll receive posters, stickers, games, activities and even a Garmin Vivo fit activity tracker! And when you’ve finished the program, we’ll send you a prize to celebrate how well you’ve done!


How does it work?

Each week children and parent and carers will:

  • Complete an online activity session
  • Speak with their phone coach
  • Work on their targets at home

The online activity sessions take about 30 minutes and can be completed at any time that suits you. Your health coaching calls take up to 30 minutes and are mostly with the parents and carers. Calls are booked ahead of time, and flexible appointment times are available in the afternoons and evenings to make it easier for you.


Throughout the program you will also receive a range of resources in the mail and regular SMS and email messages.


The TEAM Kids program is free for eligible children and has new programs starting each term.
