Palace for Life Foundation, the official charity of Crystal Palace FC, launched Healthy Eagles with the objective of working with young people and their families in south London to help them lead a healthier, happier lifestyle.

Healthy Eagles uses the power of Crystal Palace and CPFC players to inspire and encourage young people to lead an active and healthy life.

The Foundation works in the local community on a range of programmes; working with young people and their parents on health education, providing opportunities to take part in exercise, hosting engaging assemblies in local schools, putting on cooking sessions and running intensive workshops for children who are most at risk.

The Foundation has teamed up with childhood obesity experts Foodtalk and early years educators Phunky Foods to a create a brand new healthy weight management service for overweight children and families in Croydon.

Tier one of the programme supports the ‘Healthy Schools’ team and focuses on parents and communities in the areas of highest need. This will be achieved by providing six-week cook and eat sessions with families within the primary school setting.

Tier two is available at two different age groups: 4-11 years and 12-16 years. Children in the latter programme may attend without a parent or carer but parental/carer consent is needed and parental engagement through the use of the journal is a fundamental requirement.

The parents/carers of children on the programme will discuss issues around positive parenting practices, creating a supportive family environment at home and healthy body awareness. Each family is provided with a journal to monitor progress, which also provides further information on nutrition and lifestyle topics.
