Health board zooms in on council officers tackling weighty issue

Council staff are starring in a new campaign to help children maintain a healthy weight for life.


They are among the professionals featured in a series of social media videos produced by Swansea Bay University Health Board to support Public Health Wales's Ten Steps to a Healthy Weight initiative.

The videos encourage new parents to adopt healthy habits and access local support for themselves and their new arrivals.

Staff from our National Exercise Referral Scheme (NERS) Swansea and Sport & Health Physical Activity team - part of Cultural Services - are seen in a video called Aqua Fit (Exercises in Water for Pregnant Women).

Aqua Fit promotes the benefits of regular exercise during pregnancy. Supported sessions for mums-to-be are available at the Wales National Pool in Swansea, as well as other venues. 

Council (NERS) instructor Mike Dalling (pictured), one of those featured in the video, said: "We've got a brand new aqua natal class starting here at the Welsh National Pool. We make it a fun and friendly session, and you're welcome to bring a friend or a family member for support."
