Components of the Smart Moves™ Program Model

The start up manual includes information to incorporate each of these components into your childhood obesity program:

Nutrition Education for the Child and Parent

The childhood obesity treatment curriculum uses a non-diet, better food choices approach, which includes information about low-fat, nutrient-dense foods, moderate portion sizes, while teaching about hunger and fullness. Specific topics include label reading, balancing meals, portion sizes, recipe modification, healthful snacks, packing lunches for school, and much more.

Behavior Modification for the Child

The childhood obesity treatment curriculum includes many topics regarding behavior modification to help overweight children and adolescents replace negative behaviors with positive, healthful behaviors, while improving overall self-image. The topics in the workbook utilize the following techniques: self-monitoring, stimulus control, cognitive behavior strategies, stress management, and contingency management. Specific topics include Self-image, Loving Yourself Inside and Out, High-Risk Situations, and much more.

Exercise for the Child

The childhood obesity treatment curriculum includes topics regarding the medical importance of activity as well as practical benefits. Formal and informal exercise ideas, as well as staffing needs, are included in the Smart Moves™ Start-Up Manual.

Parental Support Group

The childhood obesity treatment curriculum stresses the importance of family involvement. Parents learn about good food choices for the entire family, how to be better role models, and better communicators - all factors that are strongly associated with the child's weight management success.

The curriculum includes a 95 page workbook for the parent and child with accompanying instructor's manual for the facilitation.
