Independent clinical studies show that MEND 7-13 helps children who are above a healthy weight to reach a healthier weight, improves their fitness and activity levels, and raises their self-esteem.
Research shows that the health of children who’ve been on MEND 7-13 remains improved 12 months after the programme ends. We use scientific studies including Randomised Control Trials (RCTs) to assess how effective our programmes are. We record every participant’s progress while they are attending a programme. On MEND 7-13 we track them for many years after they finish too.
The information we collect helps us support participants to sustain a healthier lifestyle, improve the programmes and services we already run, and develop new programmes and services.
