New holistic approach to treat child obesity


www.grub4life.org.uk today reports on a new scheme bringing together a range of healthcare professionals and services to offer personalised care and support for children with obesity problems. 13-08-2012

It is based on a local, holistic and sustainable approach and brings together a multi-disciplinary 'paediatric healthy weight team' – consisting of doctors, nurses, a dietician, psychologist and physical instructor – providing medical assessment, dietary advice, exercise programmes and nursing support.
 
Children and parents also work with community services offering a hands on approach to empower them to improve diet, physical activity and confidence. Services include cooking classes, exercise programmes and fun activities.
