Healthy Weight and Your Child

Program Overview

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
