Children who are at an unhealthy weight are at greater risk for serious health problems, including type 2 diabetes, depression, heart disease and disabilities, and they are more likely to become adults who are above their healthy weight range. Your child’s health is our priority at Rutherford Pediatrics and combatting pediatric weight gain in a healthy, safe, and positive way not only improves your child's quality of life, but it achieves health gains that will follow them into adulthood.

Our staff has developed a weight management clinic for children who struggle with unhealthy weight gain. The program is twelve weeks long, but its impacts will last a lifetime. At the core of every program, we engage families to determine the best treatment for your child and develop a realistic lifestyle plan for a successful outcome.
