on Harvey fit and healthy and introduced the teen to a new healthy eating plan which, surprisingly, he was a big fan of.
The former Loose Women host recently made a desperate plea for help with Harvey’s exercise regime after revealing that he now weighs 28 stone.
Less than two months later, a brand kindly sent over a selection of healthy meals which went down a treat with Harvey, whose father is former footballer Dwight Yorke.
In a video shared on Instagram, Katie can be heard asking: ‘Harv, what you eating?’ to which the teen responded with the company’s name.
‘They made you it didn’t they? Do you like it? They made it all for Harvey, healthy meals,’ Katie revealed.
An impressed Harvey replied: ‘Ooh, yeah. Lovely, it’s beautiful.’
‘Good boy, and why are you eating healthy meals?’ Katie asked, as Harvey stated: ‘Because they’re so healthy.’
His mum then encouraged: ‘We’re going to get you a bit fit, Harv,’ to which the youngster agreed: ‘Yes mum.’
In the caption, Katie explained: ‘So proud of Harvey for actually trying new food and especially because they are healthy meals from @prepkitchenuk this is the start of hoping Harvey continues to stick to trying different meals to lose weight in a healthy way ❤️.’
The 42-year-old mother-of-five previously revealed how she was struggling to keep Harvey active due to the gyms closing during lockdown.
‘Can anybody help I’m looking to rent a treadmill and rowing machine for Harvey that can take his weight 28 half stone and other gym bits as through lockdown I have to make sure he can exercise at home please help dm me [sic],’ Katie asked her Instagram followers in November.
At 28 and a half stone, Harvey is considered to be obese. The teenager suffers from Prader-Willi syndrome, a rare genetic condition that can impact muscle tone, sexual development and the function of the nervous system and can cause learning difficulties.
It also leads to a constant desire to eat food and a permanent feeling of hunger, which often leads to obesity.
Earlier this month, Katie shared her joy at finally being able to find 7XL pyjamas for Harvey.
Katie enjoyed a happy Christmas with all five of her children, including Junior, 15, Princess, 13, Jett, seven, and Bunny, six, and boyfriend Carl Woods, with the family posing for a cute Christmas photo wearing matching pyjamas.
