At Crossroads Health & Cosmetic Center we are dedicated to our patients and their families so we have created a program that focuses on our youth. Let’s be honest our children are exposed to so much and at such a young age that it has effected their health and lifestyle. Children are exposed to more media, more easy fix meals, and packaged food and well let’s be honest if their friend has it, they want it or if their friend doesn’t like it, then they don’t like it. Nutrition is such an important aspect of ones life and this program has been created to basically “teach 'em young” what the right choices are and WHY. With obesity on the rise we are seeing more children with childhood diabetes, childhood sleep apnea, behavioral disorders, asthma, and more.
We want to help families understand the importance of nutrition while getting the education they need to put their health first. In this program we will give guidance, support, and the tools you need to succeed as a family. Lets be clear, this program is not just for children who are overweight or obese, but for families who want to help teach their children better habits and improve their overall health. Our vision is for families to be confident in their health and be one team at the table.
