Jamie (7)

We got a lot out of the online sessions, it really helped us to make some positive changes to our eating habits. I liked the idea of having the quizzes and polls as you still felt really involved, and both Jamie and I had lost weight after just 6 weeks.

Jake (15)

The online programme was run brilliantly. Informative, interactive and interesting. We all found it helpful and picked up useful knowledge for life! Jake has lost 11kg and he looks and feels so much better! Thanks BeeZee Bodies for giving him a lifetime of skills to keep this going!

Chloe (9)

BeeZee Bodies is brilliant! It's a fun way to learn about healthy eating and I will remember the things I've learned for years to come. There are things my family and I do every day to help us be healthier that we wouldn't have done before BeeZee Bodies.
