Pediatric Weight Management
Each child is seen by a pediatrician during every visit. The focus is
on discussing healthy choices, the challenges of school food and the
need to avoid drinking too much juice, fruit-flavored drinks, and sodas. Physical activity is in encouraged. Much of the counseling is geared towards the parents, families, and caregivers.
Occasionally, at the family's request, a physician may provide patients with detailed dietary plans. However, as most children cannot follow a dietary plan, recommendations are generally favored over rigid diets.
