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 Fall program will begin on September 28th and run for six weeks. The curriculum will be administered via virtual classroom while the exercises and activities will take place at the NEA Baptist Clinic Wellness Center. In order to adhere to COVID guidelines we will limit in person classes to 10 kids per meeting and offer that meeting in two separate slots, four times per week. Parents will have the ability to reserve a 4:oo p.m slot or a 5:00 p.m slot. If parents would like to enroll in a completely online experience that will also be available.

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
