  • Helping Your Overweight Child
    In the United States at least one child in five is overweight and the number of overweight children continues to grow. Over the last 2 decades, this number has increased by more than 50 percent, and the number of "extremely" overweight children has nearly doubled (Arch Pediatr Adolesc Med. 1995: 149: 1085-91). A doctor determines if children are overweight by measuring their height and weight. Although children have fewer weight-related health problems than adults, overweight children are at high risk of becoming overweight adolescents and adults. Overweight adults are at risk for a number of health problems including heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure stroke, and some forms of cancer.

  • Kids Pediatric Weight Management
    The Committed To Kids Pediatric Weight Management Program is an integrated, multidisciplinary team approach to preventing and treating obesity in children.

    Many of today's children are overweight. In fact, 21 percent of today's teenagers are overweight. For children, weight maintenance or at least slowing of weight gain is recommended over weight loss. By promoting weight maintenance, time is given to allow the child to "grow into" his or her weight. Healthcare professionals strongly advise against putting children on diets. However, childhood obesity can be a severe problem despite the popular belief that the child will "outgrow" the condition. The longer a child is overweight, the greater the likelihood that obesity will continue into adulthood. THISIS An Audio Page- You can Listen to it :)
