MedPeds Supports the IDEAL program

MedPeds Logo

Medpeds is proud to be working with Children's National Health System and their Obesity Institute IDEAL Clinic as part of our continued effort to help fight childhood obesity. IDEAL stands for Improving Diet, Energy and Activity for Life Clinic and is a weight-loss and health education program for children and teens, ages 18-months to 18 years old.

The clinic team - including physicians (preventive cardiology, endocrinology, sports medicine), pediatric nurse practitioners, clinical dietitians, health educators, and sleep medicine specialists - helps children and teens live a healthier lifestyle, achieve a healthy weight and reduce the risk of complications related to obesity. The team meets with patients every four to eight weeks and can extend to a duration of greater than 1 year.

Patients may also participate in the following services

  • Dietary counseling
  • Health education classes
  • Physical activity classes
  • Weight management counseling

As a convenience, MedPeds is now offering links to nutrition handouts that are typically given to families at their initial IDEAL Weight Management Clinic visit.
