Exergaming for Health

Exergaming for Health is an exciting, 6-month group weight management program to help children and their families develop healthy lifestyle choices. For the first ten weeks, we use video gaming technology to motivate children from ages 8 to 15 to put regular exercise routines into their daily lives. Every Tuesday, your child will attend a 1 hour group “exergaming” session, followed by an hour-long nutrition and behavior class. During the first ten weeks, you and your family are invited to use the Riverplex to help apply the lessons your child learns from the program. After the initial ten weeks are up, you will meet once a month for four months in an hour long weight maintenance meetings.

To see if your child is eligible to enroll without referral, or if you have any questions or concerns, please call the Healthy Kids U clinic at 309-672-5729 or email us at eg.for.health@gmail.com!
