Get perspective on childhood obesity

via Get Fit Challenge

Pediatric endocrinologist Dr. Jill Brodsky of CareMount Medical and on the medical staff of Vassar Brothers Medical Center and Virginia Cambalik, a registered dietitian with Health Quest, will focus on appropriate meal composition, portion size and eating habits to promote healthy weight in children. The aim is to help parents and caregivers focus on healthy eating behaviors through normal hunger cues and what they can do to encourage this normal process.

The discussion will also touch on what may interrupt those cues and then derail healthy eating. This event is on Oct. 17 from 6-8 p.m. and will include a complimentary dinner at Cosimo’s in Poughkeepsie. To register, call 845-554-1734 (TTY: 800-421-1220) or click here for more information.
