As you know, childhood obesity is on the rise and few programs exist to educate families about how to manage this problem. The Smart Moves™ Program is a 12-week, non-diet, family centered approach that helps overweight children and their caregivers learn about better food choices and ways to increase activity.

If you are planning to develop a weight management program for children, we can help in the following ways by providing:

  • step-by-step start up manual (model) to help you develop and operate a childhood obesity treatment program
  • a complete weight management curriculum for ages 8-16 years old that includes workbook and instructor's manual (complete with meal plans)
  • referrals for professionals (registered dietitians and exercise specialists) in your area who are trained to deliver an educational weight management program
