Session 1: This first session teaches children, teens, and families about nutritional requirements, focusing on the role of calories, fat, protein, and carbohydrates in health and weight management. Participants will understand their own personal recommendations, while exploring technology, community resources, and the principles of healthy weight management.
The Weill Cornell Kids and Teens Healthy Weight Program, developed by a Pediatric Endocrinologist and Registered Dietitian, is a series of six interactive and age-appropriate small group sessions that focus onhealthy eating and other important food and nutrition concepts. Family members and caretakers are encouraged to attend with their children.
