Program Teaches Kids Healthy Eating Styles

FREEPORT (WIFR) -- FHN and Sodexo will offer a spring session of Create Your Weight for Kids, a kids’ version of the popular, personalized weight reduction and management program developed and taught by registered dietitians.

The 10-week program, designed to be attended by one adult with each child, begins April 4, with classes each Thursday from 5 to 5:45 p.m. at FHN Memorial Hospital, 1045 W. Stephenson Street in Freeport. Topics to be covered include:

• Portions and servings
• Making good choices when dining out
• Snacking
• Importance of physical activity
• Family involvement in healthy behaviors
• Building self-esteem and confidence
• Knowing the difference between eating when you’re hungry vs. other reasons
