Committed to Helping Every Child Live a Healthy Life

Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital is committed to helping every child live an active and healthy life. The Mary Bridge Pediatric Weight and Wellness Program for ages 2-17 provides access to health care professionals who have expertise in helping families make healthy changes. The program’s holistic approach can result in lasting improvements in your child’s health and quality of life.

Program Philosophy:

  • Emphasizes overall health (physical/social/emotional) and well-being of the child or adolescent.
  • Highlights the strengths of each family member in order to support an environment that promotes healthy growth and development.
  • Promotes living actively, eating in a healthy but not depriving way, and creating a nurturing environment that helps the child or adolescent develop and grow to his/her potential.

If you are concerned about your child's health and weight, talk to your doctor about your child's growth history and Body Mass Index (BMI). If your child’s BMI is greater than 95%, your child may benefit from an In-depth Assessment. How to participate in the MB Pediatric Weight and Wellness Program.
