MEND 2-4 is a fun, effective and practical healthy lifestyle program aimed at families with young children aged 2-4 years.

Healthy Weight Partnership, Inc

Since 2000 our team has developed, implemented and continually improved evidence-based weight management programs internationally, with a focus on children above a healthy weight and their families. As exclusive licensees of MEND (Mind, Exercise, Nutrition… Do It!) programs in North America, we are part of the largest and most researched system of child weight management programs in the world. We work closely with community-based, public, private, non-profit and academic organizations to reach some of the neediest families and communities.

MEND programs are evidence-based and delivered to groups in communities. They include nutrition advice and physical activity, supported by behavior change techniques. Their core is typically 10 weeks, with maintenance and support following the program.
