What is Brenner FIT Academy: For Families?

The Brenner FIT Academy: For Families is a group version of Brenner FIT. This program was created by the Brenner FIT team at Brenner Children’s. Classes are led by a Brenner FIT-trained Family Support Specialist. In this program, we guide your family toward lifestyle changes without using restrictive diets or strict exercise plans.

How do we become a Brenner FIT Academy family?

No referral is necessary. If you are concerned about your child’s weight or health (ages 2 to 18), your family may join the program.

Parent Participant Testimonial
"Brenner FIT Academy provided me with helpful and very usable advice on planning and preparing meals and snacks so that my kids can develop a healthy relationship with food. The program provided several meal recipe ideas that have become new favorites."

This program is absolutely free!

How long is the program?

What will we learn?

  • How to make changes together as a family that will last a lifetime
Parent Participant Testimonial
"Brenner FIT has been a great tool for our family. It is really nice to gather with a group of parents who share similar concerns and have discussions. The curriculum has reinforced a lot of what our pediatrician has told us in the past, but so much more in-depth than she was ever able to go. As a parent trying to break the cycle of disordered eating and unhealthy relationships with food, I would definitely recommend the Brenner FIT Academy to other parents!"
- Heather C.
