HEALTHY WEIGHT & YOUR CHILD

EMPOWERING FAMILIES TO
LIVE HEALTHIER

  

 

 

 

Healthy Weight and Your Child focuses on healthy eating, regular physical activity and behavior change to empower children to live a healthier and active lifestyle. Families will work with trained Leaders for the duration of the 25-session program.

Why Family Based?

·     Evidence shows that child weight-management programs are more effective when the whole family is involved and committed to adopting healthier habits.

To Qualify, a Child Must:

·       Be 7-13 years old

·       Carry excess weight (Body mass index of the 95th percentile or higher)

·       Receive clearance from a provider to participate in physical activity

 

·       Have an adult attend ALL sessions with them
