This Thursday, November 30, dietician Ronda Sisak will give a talk entitled entitled "Keep Kids Fit: Healthy Nutrition for Families." She will discuss the role of nutrition and exercise in a healthy family, as well as tips for avoiding childhood (and adult) obesity. Her goals are to help families with children develop a healthy lifestyle by learning how to eat properly and exercise regularly. No signup is required for this free seminar.

Through the its clinical nutrition department, Children's Medical Center of Dallas has started the Dean Foods LEAN (Lifestyle Exercise AndNutrition) Families Program. The intensive 12-week session provides children and their families with weight management therapy, developing life-long habits of good nutrition and healthy activities.
The program includes an initial assessment by a multidisciplinary team consisting of a pediatrician, dietitian, physical therapist, social worker and other support staff. Families participate in weekly education classes, covering topics such as behavior modification, physical activity and nutrition education. For more information on the Dean Foods LEAN Families Program or to refer a patient, call 214-456-LEAN(5326).
