MEND 6-11 is a healthy lifestyle program for 6 to 11 year olds who are above a healthy weight and their parents. Parent focused meetings are held twice a week for eight weeks and supported by nutrition education that includes kids and parents. Kids also learn to get active through fun, games- based exercise sessions for an hour every meeting. The meetings also help with parenting support strategies. It is currently piloting in the US for use in a variety of community settings.
