At Home

We all strive to keep our children healthy and happy. But no matter how hard we try, life happens. Kids go through natural stages that may include challenges to their health and social wellbeing.

As a parent, your best course is to stay informed and involved. It’s a sad truth in America that many of our children’s health disorders are linked to excess weight and inactivity. Childhood obesity can lead to poor acceptance among peers, diminished self-esteem, and a host of serious physical problems. We’re here to help!
