Childhood healthy weights continue to be a priority in B.C. As programs are delivered we learn more about what is required to best meet the needs of B.C. children and their families. With this in mind, the Childhood Obesity Foundation is developing a new program tailored to the needs of B.C. families. This program will fit the B.C. context and be integrated with existing programs that help children and their families work towards a healthy weight and a healthier lifestyle. As a result, MEND (Mind, Exercise, Nutrition, Do It!) is no longer being offered in B.C.
The Childhood Obesity Foundation would like to extend our sincere thanks to all of the families, staff and partners who participated and supported the MEND program across B.C.
We encourage you to visit www.childhoodobesityfoundation.ca for updates on our progress.
