Medically safe and effective way for children and youth to achieve a healthy weight
2525 Ogden Avenue, Downers Grove, IL 60515
Your child achieving their ideal body weight is a delicate but constant balance between energy intake and expenditure.
Children store up energy from food and drinks consumed, and spend energy in the form of physical activity.
It is our goal to help you find the combination of energy intake and expenditure that works best for your child and family. We will also
develop a plan to incorporate this balance into your daily schedule in order to create a sustainable lifestyle change.
