Fighting childhood obesity

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan has developed the Good Health Club toolkit to support you in preventing obesity in your pediatric patients. This toolkit provides materials that encourage children and young adults to develop healthy lifestyles.

The toolkit is based on materials created here in Michigan and is now being used by Blue Cross providers across the nation. It was developed in consultation with the American Diabetes Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics.
