Joanna Dolgoff, M.D. has created a simple and popular traffic light-based nutrition system that allows children to lose weight safely and effectively. The program, designed by a Board Certified Pediatrician, offers a kid-friendly approach to help children learn the benefits of healthy food choices and portion control. Rather than requiring children and parents to constantly track calorie counts and fat content, Dr. Dolgoff has divided over one thousand foods (with appropriate serving sizes) into easily recognizable “green light”, “yellow light”, and “red light” categories and (based upon a child’s height, weight, gender, and age) creates customized plans that determine the amount of “colors” that should be consumed at each meal and snack. No food is off-limits and with Dr. Dolgoff’s Weigh, kids are encouraged to be creative with their food selections...and to even indulge every now and then! Join us to learn more about this helpful program and for Dr. Dolgoff's tips for keeping your kids healthy!
