Pediatric Weight Wellness

Pediatric Weight Wellness
Did you know that almost 1/3 of Canadian children between the ages of 5 and 17 are overweight or obese? That’s 1.6 million kids! Statistics show that most adolescents do not outgrow their weight but rather continue to gain more as adults.  They are more at risk for developing chronic adult health conditions such as type II diabetes, elevated cholesterol, high blood pressure, stroke, some cancers and arthritis.

Toronto Weight Loss and Wellness Clinic is dedicated to educating, motivating and inspiring kids to be their best and healthiest selves.  We emphasize overall wellness instead of calorie counting and encourage nutritious eating and fun physical activities while also accounting for other underlying factors such as genetics, neurotransmitter or hormone imbalances, prolonged stress or food sensitivities.

We understand that weight loss can be a sensitive issue for kids and adolescents.  Dr. Shelly Reitkop, N.D has been working with kids for more than 5 years and has developed the first and only customized and comprehensive 12-week Pediatric Weight Loss Program that aims at lifelong weight wellness.

Under Dr. Shelly’s guidance, each child receives specific nutritional guidelines, physical activity instructions and supplement recommendations.  Weekly weight wellness check-in’s teach your child about accountability while also helping to identify obstacles and come up with strategies for success.
