Weight Loss & Weight Management (Children)

In a recent national survey of sixth graders with excess weight, 24 percent boys and 30 percent girls experienced daily teasing, bullying, or rejection because of their size.

That number more than doubles by high school with 58 percent of boys and 63 percent of girls experiencing daily weight related teasing and bullying.

Nearly one in three Ontario children are overweight or obese. If you are concerned about your child’s weight you certainly aren't alone. Statistics show that fewer than 1 in 5 kindergarteners identified in at-risk weight categories outgrow their at-risk weight by 5th grade.

Unfortunately not only are children with overweight or obesity at an increased risk of potential medical problems, they’re also at a higher risk of:

 

  •     Poor self-esteem

  •     Feeling socially isolated

  •     Depression

  •     Impaired social skills

  •     Higher levels of stress and anxiety

  •     Behaviour and/or learning problems as a result of psychological difficulties related to childhood obesity


Dalewood Health Clinic provides free services to overweight children between the ages of 5-12 whose parents are enroled in any of our Weight loss or Weight Management programs.

Our Family Weight Loss program takes place during the duration of your program, providing you with unlimited access to our registered dietitians.

 

By working with the parents of children with weight related issues, we eliminate the potential risk of harming a child’s body image or relationship with food.
