Centre for Healthy Active Living

Our mission:

To improve the health and quality of life of children with weight related health complications and support them and their families in achieving a healthy active lifestyle.

CHEO’s Centre for Healthy Active Living works with children and their families with complex severe obesity through one coordinated and patient-specific plan of care which includes specialists such as a pediatric endocrinologist, general pediatrician, psychologists, case management nurse, registered dietitian, exercise specialist, social worker and child and youth counselor.

Recognizing that healthy bodies come in a wide range of body shapes and sizes, CHEO’s Centre for Healthy Active Living works with families to help them improve health through changes in health behaviours. Making changes to health behaviours - how and what you eat, how you move and how you cope - can lead to significant improvements in health and well-being, with little or no changes in body weight.

Patients must meet criteria and be referred by a physician using our referral form
