It’s time for change…
In our schools program we bring a fresh approach that empowers young women to change their focus away from deprivation, towards nourishment, focussing more on behaviours surrounding food, such as goal-setting, and mindful eating. We take the focus off weight and instead cultivate an appreciation and love for who we are and the bodies that we find ourselves in.
We know this approach is backed by science, we know it has better psychological health outcomes and we know it has greater long-term success. We’re passionate about equipping young women with the resilience they need to stamp out negative body image and celebrate body diversity in all it’s forms in the ever evolving body conscious world we live in.
