(Package 3) Nutrition Consultation for School children (Aged 6-12) - on overweight - 5 sessions package
Childhood obesity has become an ever-increasing problem among local school children.
Statistics from the Student Health Service of the Department of Health revealed that the proportion of overweight/obese primary one students rose from 11.3% in 1996/97
to 17.1% in 2008/09. Despite the slight decrease, it still remained at a considerable level of 13.6% in 2012/13. The figures indicate the prevalence of overweight/obesity at the pre-primary stage.
School children aged 6 to 12 years grow rapidly and can be very active, which makes it essential for them to eat a healthy and varied diet to acquire adequate energy and nutrients. A balanced diet should be combined with regular exercise to maintain a healthy body weight.
This package aims to help parents choose a healthy and balanced diet for their children to prevent or manage problems of being overweight. Our dietitian will monitor the growth chart to make sure your child continues to follow the same "curve" over time and that the growth pattern does not show unexpected change.
