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. Balance! is a pediatric practice which specializes in helping overweight children and youth lose weight and subsequently maintain a healthy weight.
As you explore our website, you will find the services we provide and activities that you and your family can enjoy. By taking small but persistent steps, you will be on a path to a healthier weight.
