Weigh Smart® Jr. is a program for weight management of toddlers and preschool-aged children involving medical, nutritional, educational and behavioral components. The goal is to help children acquire healthy eating and exercise habits that last a lifetime. Each child will participate in a one-on-one clinical assessment with our pediatric gastroenterologist or nurse practitioner, and pediatric psychologist. Upon completion of the evaluation, the family will be referred to a pediatric dietitian.
The Weigh Smart® Jr. Program is open to children ages two to seven years old. The sessions must be attended by the child and parent(s) and will focus on lifestyle changes and healthy dietary choices for the family.
Enrollment requires completion of admission paperwork and obtaining fasting labwork through your pediatrician's office.
Required fasting labs include a lipid panel and hemoglobin A1C.
Please Note: We will book an evaluation only after receiving your child's completed admission paperwork.

Your insurance company will likely require pre-authorization and referrals from the child's primary care provider for these services. It is each family's responsibility to understand their own coverage and requirements. We will bill your insurance company for the services and collect co-pays and deductibles at the time of service.
