"Healthy You" - Weight Management Program
January 22 - March 25, 2008 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Children who weigh more than they should risk serious health problems such as high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol. Self-esteem and body image can also suffer. If your child struggles to maintain a healthy weight, Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters weight management program can help.

“Healthy You” is the region’s only weight management program designed specifically for young people. It includes an individual assessment, a 10-week series of healthy lifestyle classes and an 8-week membership to the YMCA.

Parents and children will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn the fundamentals of good nutrition and portion control.
  • Kick-start a personal exercise program that is fun and motivating.
  • Gain support and hope from other children and families with similar concerns.

Call (757) 668-7035 for registration material and tuition information. Tuition assistance is available.
