Children & Teenagers

Help them when they are young and they can better help themselves when they are older. We are one of the few clinics offering this service. We will assist in a sympathetic manner and create better habits for the parent and the child.

Get children and teenagers motivated to lose weight on our special Child and Teen programme. This programme is suitable for children and teenagers up to the age of 17 years, and comes with supervision from Dr. Eva Orsmond.

Children and teenagers follow this programme with a supporting adult. This is required for adequate communication and follow-up of the suggested plan at home. The supporting adult can choose a different diet plan to the child or teenager, depending on possible need to lose weight themselves or  focus on healthy living and nutritional improvement of their own diet.
