Healthy Weight and Your Child

EMPOWERING FAMILIES TO LIVE HEALTHIER

Healthy Weight and Your Child is a 25-session evidence-based weight management program to reclaim your family’s health through healthier eating habits and an active lifestyle. This program is designed with the whole family in mind, engaging a child and adult in education, healthy eating and physical activity to elicit positive change and help families learn skills to live a healthier lifestyle long-term. Evidence shows that child weight-management programs are more effective when the whole family is involved and committed to adopting healthier habits.
