Kim Roberts (Chief Executive at HENRY - Health, Exercise and Nutrition for the Really Young)

January 2020

Kim Roberts has been HENRY’s Chief Executive since 2012. Her background is in family support and early development, which has given her both a profound insight into the impact of children’s very early experiences and a passionate determination to make sure that parents and practitioners get the quality of support they need to provide children with the best start in life.

Our discussion starts with Kim sharing why, and how, HENRY is so important in preventing childhood obesity, rather than just tackling it. We talk through her experiences of working with families who have many struggles other than just health and lifestyle, and how helping parents with these realities is an important first step.

Kim shares her views on where behavioural science is at in the industry, and how to ensure that professionals have not only the right skills, but also the right support, to deliver behaviour change in the most effective way.
