The MEND (Mind, Exercise, Nutrition… Do It!) Program

Healthy Weight | Obesity This BC-based program was a community intervention aimed to empower families of overweight and obese children to adopt and maintain healthy lifestyles. This program combines family involvement, behaviour change, practical education in nutrition, and increasing physical activity to encourage lifestyle modification. MEND is not a diet, nor is designed for rapid weight loss. The purpose of the program was instead to bring about incremental and lasting improvements in families’ dietary intake, fitness levels and overall health to help encourage healthy growth and weight management.
