Fit4AllKids at All Children's Hospital
A task force of pediatric physicians, dietitians, physical therapists, educators and advocates spent a year developing Fit4Allkids to help children maintain a healthy weight and body size, and be more active and fit. The program encourages children to do their personal best and reach their own individual goals for weight loss/weight management and physical activity.
