Children's Health


Rapids Family Health Team’s Ministry of Health and Long Term Care funded MOMENTUM program takes a holistic family approach to foster healthy body weights and healthy relationships with food among all family members through education and empowerment.

Children between the ages of 2 – 18 struggling with weight issues may be referred to the program by their primary health care provider. The progrma includes:

  • access to a registered dietitian and social worker whom will emphasize the importance of making health-focused changes as a family, target nutrition interventions towards the possible health complications of excess weight, encourage physical activity for a healthy lifestyle and foster healthy attitudes towards body image and self-esteem in children and youth.
  • access to interactive youth programs allowing youth of all ages to be involved outside of office-appointments.
