Learning Goals & Objectives:
This tested program, by Food and Health Communications, is great for a 3 to 12-month wellness/weight and cooking program for kids aged middle school through high school.

All topics support the messages given in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Topics chosen are meant to support today's consumer so they can make better choices in their fast-paced lifestyles.

PLUS this program has modules written by Victoria Shanta-Retelny, MS, RD, for stress management. And exercise at home and home exercise equipment tips are given by Jan Treftz-Allen, MS. Jan bought our first set of 12 lessons and like so many of our customers, wanted a 2nd set. So we put our heads together and came up with the best lessons of all of our programs and more important things to teach kids and teens for wellness and weight loss.
Here is what other customers are saying about this our 12 Lessons Programs:
I have enjoyed your 12 Lessons of Weight Loss materials and have used the Portion Control DVD with my groups in our multidisciplinary bariatrics program. Randall Feezell. M.D.
Attached are our overall stats for the 10 week program. We had optional onsite weigh ins at about 14 locations (about of participants did this) but “Educational” materials (almost entirely your stuff) was provided online on our internal website for our locations spread far and wide around the Carolinas. 3102 employees lost 9530 pounds and now we are on our next set of 12 lessons. Thanks! Lauren Hatcher, MS, RD, LDN, CWPC
The presentation gives a great general overview of what healthy ideas need to be followed. We have added a show-and-tell portion to demonstrate what the lesson details. What might be nice to include in the presentation is more case studies as we went through each of those with our group and also look at more comparisons - people learn more when they can see the data in their own life. Including more numbers and comparing food products (and then we can bring in the example products) would assist in digesting the material better. Overall a great product for us with little extra input needed. Nice to have the framework done!
The handouts for your programs have been great. Thank you!
Materials have been very helpful and informative.
Thank you for such a thorough and concise product! We received an abundance of positive feedback from those we presented the material to, and we will continue to utilize the courses. Krista Bobo.
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for all the wonderful added tidbits you are constantly sending us. The information is always useful, current, and fun. I recently purchased the wellness/weight management program from you and my boss (a nurse/educator) is still raving about how fantastic and versatile the program is. I am so anxious to start using it come Sept. So, thank you again, for the amazing job you do to keep us timely with our nutrition messages. Jane Hackett, MA, RD, CDE, LD
