Information for health professionals

Help families make healthy changes for their future

Empower parents and carers to make informed decisions through practical education and the provision of supporting resources.

Program overview

The Active8 program helps families with healthy eating, physical activity and behaviour change.

It is delivered in two flexible, fun and family friendly formats that focus on forming positive habits.
Designed by the Better Health Company’s team of nutrition, psychology and exercise professionals. It offers practical skills and knowledge that lead to sustained change.
The content is aligned with current Australian government guidelines for healthy eating and physical activity.

How does Active8 help families?

We aim to bridge the gap between emerging research, best practice evidence and
government guidelines by developing hands on, practical programs for the health and community sectors.

Our team provide ready-made programs, professional development training, data management systems and accessible resources – all designed to help you provide high quality services to your clients.

In person learning

Families are invited to a program at a local community venue, where they'll learn alongside other parents and children. Our group-based programs include opportunities for active and creative play, as well as food exposure activities for young children.

Online option

Parents and carers are given access to interactive online learning sessions, and have the opportunity to connect with their own health coach over the phone, as well as other parents and carers via virtual group discussions. The online format provides flexibility for busy parents whilst still supporting families to establish healthy habits for young children at home.
