Kids THRIVE

We are currently seeking funding for this program.The Kids THRIVE (Teaching Healthy Routines InterVEntion) Program gives parents and children a positive, safe approach to creating and maintaining a healthy life! Kids THRIVE focuses on improving the health and wellness of overweight/obese children and their families using evidenced-based curriculum to teach essential skills for behavior changes, which include nutrition education, healthy meal planning, engaging exercise and behavioral modification.Kids THRIVE was developed from Trim Kids research based weight loss management for overweight or obese children. FLIPANY staff discussed the name of the intervention and contacted the researcher to get permission to use a more “friendly” name.

Permission was granted and FLIPANY now delivers Kids (Families) THRIVE, a unique 12 week plan that gives parents and children a positive, safe initial approach to a lifetime weight management program. Each week, parents and kids together will practice scientifically proven ways to increase daily activity and will set (and celebrate!) achievable eating and exercise goals. Children will learn kid-specific exercises especially designed for their weight levels, and the family will enjoy dozens of menu plans with tasty, nutritious, kid-tested recipes. You’ll discover easy nutrition strategies including shopping tips and you’ll learn how to coach your child in well established behavioral strategies for making healthier lifestyle choices away from home.

We hold weekly programs in different areas of South Florida, call or email for schedules or for more information 954-636-2388 or info@flipany.org
