Creating healthy habits with children and their families. Healthy Weight and Your Child is an evidence-based program for children who fall in the greater than 95% range. The family-based weight-management program focuses on nutrition education and physical activity to encourage healthier eating habits and an active lifestyle to reach a healthy weight. 
Families registered for this program will work with trained leaders. During this time, children and an adult caregiver will learn about topics, including:

  • Healthy eating
  • Physical activity
  • Portion control
  • Internal and external triggers
  • Food label reading
  • Goal setting and rewards
