Childhood Obesity Services

Who needs assessment?

Any child who is overweight (BMI between 85% to 94.9%) or obese (BMI at or above 95%) will benefit from our Childhood Obesity Services. Also, if your family has a strong history of obesity and you want to prevent your child from becoming obese, these services will be useful.

An obese child should not be put on a diet, without proper medical guidance.
