Obesity effects 17% of all children and adolescents in the United States-this is triple the rate from one generation ago. Today – one in 6 children are living with obesity and one in three are overweight.

Healthy Weight and Your Child (HWYC) is an evidenced based program that aims to empower children and families through education, healthy eating and physical activity to help families learn skills and behaviors to live a healthier lifestyle.

The yearlong program is designed for children ages 7—13 years of age with a body mass index of the 95th percentile or higher.Children must have clearance from a health care provider or school nurse in order to participate. A parent must attend all sessions. The program includes 16 weekly sessions followed by post core sessions for the remainder of the year.
