Healthy Weight & Your Child

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. Children - your children - are our future, meaning that we must help them in being the healthiest they can be. Change, as we all know, starts at the top and trickles down. By working alongside your child, the chance for success vastly increases.

Families will work with trained Leaders for the duration of the 25-session program.

EMPOWERING FAMILIES TO LIVE HEALTHIER

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
