Overweight and obesity are growing concerns in our society. For many children playing with others may be difficult because of weight issues and body image. This energetic presentation will review strategies and appropriate exercises and games along with nutritional and lifestyle check-ins for families to work together as a team, change habits, and take charge of their lifestyle choices. Examine assessment protocols and discuss reward systems to encourage motivation and enhance self confidence. (CEU)
