The New Balance Foundation Obesity Prevention Center Boston Children’s Hospital is dedicated to helping families, health care providers and community organizations fight to end childhood obesity.
Fueled by our culture, media and economics, children in the United States are eating fewer healthful foods, exercising less and weighing more. The result is an epidemic that puts happy, healthy futures at risk.
Our mission is to empower people to live healthy, active lives by:
- researching innovative ways to prevent childhood obesity
- providing evidence-based treatments for overweight and obese children
- increasing awareness and education of causes, prevention and treatments
- advocating for policy changes to promote healthy weight
