Center for Healthy Children

The Center for Healthy Children is a free program where children struggling with obesity learn how to live an active & healthy lifestyle.

The goal of this program is to show participating children how maintaining both an active lifestyle and proper nutrition can improve their health and overall well-being.

Working directly with schools and physician offices, Center for Healthy Children takes referrals for kids 8-12 years of age with a BMI (Body Mass Index) within the obese percentile.

Check back soon for info on our Fall program. While we construct what that will be, all things considered, the application will remain active if anyone would like to enroll their child(ren).

Center for Healthy Children is funded through the foundation, memorials, honorariums and generous gifts from the community and NEA Baptist employees.

Our Impact

Our son Connor, has been attending the Center for Healthy Children program and has enjoyed attending the classes. I have been able to sit in on several nutrition classes which were eye opening to me. I highly recommend this program for any child or teenager. Sarah Lamkin
