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.
Our summer program has two sessions and runs for three weeks meeting Monday- Friday. Children will be divided into two groups based on age. Our 8 & 9 year olds will go from 11 am to 1 pm while the 10-12 year olds roll from 1:30-3:30. Session one will start on June 22 ending on July 10 and session two will start a week after going from July 20 to August 7. Deadlines for enrolling are June 15th for session one & July 10 for Session two.
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
