List of Ingredients
- Non-profit organization focusing on the health and wellbeing of children.
KidShape is an organization based in California, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Ohio, Maryland and New York. The organization is a three-tier approach to a healthy lifestyle. The beginning program is KinderShape. This program is six weeks long and focusing on healthy practices for children between the ages of three and five.
KidShape lasts nine-weeks and is designed for children between the ages of 6 and 14. This program includes family members as well for long-term maintenance. The third program is TeenShape. This program is for teenagers over 14 as well as family members. The program lasts six-weeks.
The program is great to get kids moving, while teaching them as well as families healthy eating habits. The program does not utilize holistic approaches, rather medical-based techniques to end the trend of obesity.
We noticed valuable information on the official website. There is a section pertaining to family activities, information relating to healthy eating as well as recipes created by KidShape graduates. The only thing missing is the pricing of the programs.
- Kid appropriate diet and exercise.
- Programs are monitored by licensed physicians.
- The programs are only one day per week for the duration of the classes.
- The classes incorporate the entire family.
- Franchise opportunities are available.
- Spanish language programs are available.
- There is information on the website designed for kids.
- There is no pricing information on the website.
KidShape is a unique opportunity to end the cycle of obesity in the United States. The classes are geared toward the child instead of an adult. The programs are ideal for the busy lifestyle, meeting only once per week. We like how KidShape incorporates the entire family. This addresses long-term weight management and not just short-term successes. We would have liked to see the pricing. Although KidShape is great for kids, the budget-conscience dieter may not have the means to engage in a program due to cost considerations.
