Welcome to Building Healthy Families!
Building Healthy Families (BHF) is a family-based pediatric weight management program for children 6-12 years old and their families. Our goal is to work with families, especially children, in identifying healthier food choices, modifying unhealthy behaviors and increasing physical activity.
The cost of the program is free for the entire family and the program has been shown to be effective!
The BHF program requires your family to attend 12 sessions over 3 months. Each session is approximately 2 hours. During the weekly session, all family members will participate in practical nutrition education, goal setting and healthy lifestyle strategies and physical activities.
Example goals would be: limiting soda consumption, reduction or elimination of screen time, limiting fast food to once per week, or other health enhancing and weight management approaches. Families who meet their goals are successful!
It is a FUN way to spend your evening, as a family!
