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 yearlong program over twenty-five, two-hour sessions.
To qualify, a child must:
Be 6-12 years old
Carry excess weight, with a body mass index of the 85th percentile or higher
Receive clearance from a provider to participate in physical activity
Have an adult attend ALL sessions with them
Evidence shows that child weight-management programs are more effective when the whole family is involved and committed to adopting healthier habits.
