Pediatric Weight Management

Maintaining a healthy weight is of paramount importance in the health of your child. Not only does it keep your child healthy in the immediate, it sets the foundation for good heart health further down the road.

A healthy weight for a healthy life.

Obesity in children is an epidemic in the United States, and is steadily increasing. Recent studies show that 15% of kids from the ages of 6 to 19 are at risk of being overweight with 15% more already classified as such. Overweight children experience numerous negative impacts, both medically and socially. At East Lake Pediatrics, we’re here to help you get your child on track to a healthy body and a healthy mind.

As the saying goes, losing weight starts in the kitchen. Food choices play a major role in your child’s health, and should be in the forefront of your mind when cooking for your child. Our experts will help you get on the right track to a healthier diet at home, and if necessary, we will recommend a nutrition specialist to help keep your little one healthy and happy.
