Twenty five fathers and their children from Scone, Muswellbrook and Aberdeen started the Healthy Dads Healthy Kids program in March 2012. There is growing support for HDHK in these communities and it was wonderful to see local schools, community members and organisations working together to recruit fathers into the program. These families will reap the benefits of dads focussed on their health and engaged with their kids in fun physical activity and healthy eating experiences. The HDHK team would like to wish the fathers in the program all the best and thank all those who were involved in planning and recruitment.
Local Aberdeen resident Shane Lloyd (pictured with his daughters Anna and Kate) took part in the HDHK program in 2011, losing 7.5kg in the process.
