Trillium Health Partners believes that early investment in children’s health can greatly improve long-term health and well-being. We established the KidFit Health and Wellness Clinic in direct response to Peel Region’s above average child obesity and type 2 diabetes (T2D) rates, and with the generous support from the Medavie Health Foundation and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.
The KidFit Health and Wellness Clinic is a two-year health and wellness program that applies a holistic approach to health using the Health at Every Size (HAES) principles. Our focus is on supporting families to develop positive, sustainable health behaviours. We are not a weight loss clinic. We celebrate body diversity and honour differences in size, age, race, ethnicity, dis/ability, sexual orientation, religion, class, and other human attributes. A Paediatric Endocrinologist, Registered Nurse, Social Worker, Dietitian and Activity Specialist support the program. Families are scheduled into group sessions and individual appointments throughout the two-year program. Please discuss the program commitment outlined below before referring families to KidFit.
The program will consist of pre-scheduled group sessions and individual appointments
Families attend 2 phases focused on parenting skills and nutrition.
Each phase consists of 8-weekly sessions (on a weekday evening).
Will be in-person at 6, 12, 18, and 24 months with Paediatric Endocrinologist, Nurse & Social Worker.
Offered as a hybrid of in-person/virtual at 3, 9, 15 and 21 months with Dietitian & Activity Specialist.
