Healthy Kids is a family-based, medically-supervised program that encourages a healthy diet and active lifestyle for children and teens 5 to 18 years old. Children and their families are guided through every step of the program by doctor, dietician and nurse educator.
The program's success speaks for itself. Of the last 100 children who went through the program, 93 percent lost weight. Their average BMI range also dropped from 34.5 to 32.3 in the first eight weeks.
