A word from our parents

How has Go4Fun influenced your family?

Parent 1: The way she’s starting to think, her mentality has changed.

She eats only wholemeal bread now. You know, and I’m quite proud of that because before it was yuck without even tasting it.

You know, it was all ew. Cringe before you even put it in your mouth. You know.

She’s into the broccoli, the carrots and yeah she loves coming.

Francis, Go4Fun Parent: My wife, she told me that she found this program online.

Jess has picked up on eating her vegetables which is great.

Now she has carrots, asparagus, broccoli, because she has to come to the program and show what she’s eaten for the week, so she’s she’s striving towards it.

And it’s a massive change to what we normally do.

She exercises more, we spend more time with them so we have to be with them more often and try and talk to them more.

She loves coming, she loves coming. She loves to know about it, keep on learning, asking her questions.

And I believe she has lost some weight as well. So that’s the start we were looking for.
