Weight management programs can easily stir up controversy, especially when they are targeting a younger demographic. AdventHealth for Children, however, attempts to help kids with bad eating habits and disorders by tapping specialists who are familiar with "all aspects of weight management for children and teens."
While traditional weight management programs can have a detrimental effect on a child's self-esteem or they can poorly influence self-perception and relationships with food, AdventHealth for Children is careful in redirecting youngsters to a healthy weight, while also "avoiding associated health problems." In addition, the program puts particular emphasis on wellness, focusing on the concepts of "jargon [and] judgment," as well as the connection between mind, body, and spirit, to inform and make children aware.
