Dear Daila,

Many programs are available for tackling the heart-wrenching and dangerous problem of child and adolescent obesity.  But most of them are focused on only one area, such as exercise, or healthy eating. And most are developed for use with all children.

Dr. Holly Kihm believes that the most successful route to weight management for children and youth is a multidisciplinary, holistic one that is geared specifically to those who are already obese.  She set out to find one that incorporates all three of the essential components of an obesity program-nutrition education, exercise, and psycho-social factors.

Such a program did not exist.  She decided to develop one that would pull together all the best aspects of the many programs she reviewed.  She modified them to be suitable for kids ages 6 to 13 who were already overweight.  Thus, FitKids was born-and early test results are proving that it works.

Dr. Kihm will provide a comprehensive overview of the latest information on child and adolescent obesity, the underlying concepts of FitKids, and why it is ideal for family and consumer sciences.

As a nation, we have made modest progress in dealing with childhood and adolescent obesity, however, it remains a significant health crisis:  17%, or 12.5 million, of kids ages 2 to 19 are obese.  And that is triple the rate from just the 1980s.

This webinar will bring you up to date on the current situation and will offer you powerful and effective strategies for addressing the issue from a holistic perspective. You will hear about the most widely used programs in use today and you will take a deeper look at the 12-week FitKids program, designed specifically for obese children and adolescents.

In just 90 minutes, you will learn about:

  *   Trends, current statistics, and recent studies of childhood and adolescent obesity
  *   The key contributors to overweight and obesity among this age group
  *   The various consequences to obesity including: physical, psychological, economical
  *   The most successful weight management programs, including formal programs, school-based initiatives, family-based programs, and bariatric surgery options for teens
  *   Why weight management (for children and adolescents who are healthy weight and for those who are not at a healthy weight) is a multidisciplinary effort.

In addition to the topics above, this webinar will walk you through the one-of-a-kind FitKids program that can be used across the entire spectrum of family and consumer sciences and can be adapted for any age group from 6 to 13.  Dr. Kihm will explain how she introduced age-appropriate activities to help kids understand concepts such as what calories really are or how much sugar is in a can of soda.  Physical activities and exercises were modified to be more realistic for obese children who, for example, may struggle with jumping rope.

And through special units that focus on peer relationships, body image, and responding to teasing, FitKids addresses the painful self-esteem issues that affect obese kids.

You will also hear about the exciting results of the FitKids pilot study-in terms of before and after measurements, self-concept scores, and weight loss.

If you are an instructor, you will be able to incorporate FitKids into your lesson plans about obesity.  The program also can be used in any youth development initiative or in settings such as the YMCA, after-school, or community program.
