FALL SESSION STARTING THE WEEK OF AUGUST 28TH!!! 

The purpose of the NEA Baptist Charitable Foundation Center for Healthy Children is to teach, motivate and guide overweight children and their families how to build a solid foundation of proper nutrition and regular exercise for a healthy lifestyle.

Working directly with the schools and physician offices, the Center for Healthy Children takes referrals of overweight children who have a BMI (Body Mass Index) of 30 or greater. Our target ages for the center is children 8-12 years old.  

We have also added a teen program for ages 13-17.  It is our goal to teach the participating children and their families nutrition education and exercise habits that will last a lifetime. Classes include healthy cooking, basic nutrition, grocery shopping and label reading. We encourage active lifestyles and family activities. Having the center located at the NEA Baptist Clinic Wellness Center enables us to help the families become active.Each program consists of several months of exercise, nutrition education and 
measurements.

OUR FALL CENTER FOR HEALTHY CHILDREN SESSION WILL BE STARTING THE WEEK OF AUGUST 28TH. PLEASE FILL OUT APPLICATION BELOW IF YOUR CHILD QUALIFIES FOR THE PROGRAM.
