Session 1: Staying Fit for the Future
This 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.
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The Weill Cornell Kids and Teens Healthy Weight Program, developed and led by Pediatric Endocrinologist Dr. Marisa Censani and Registered Dietitian Isabel Reckson, is a free series of 6 interactive, age-appropriate small group sessions that focus on healthy eating and other important food and nutrition concepts. Guest speakers such as professional chefs, social workers, and exercise specialists cover the broad spectrum of developing a healthy diet -- essential to growth, development and weight management.
Family members and caretakers are encouraged to attend with their children. We strive to make classes hands-on and fun!
