The increase in overweight and obesity among children has emerged as an important public health issue. This trend has highlighted the need for accessible and novel approaches to support healthy weights for children and their families to prevent childhood obesity.
The purpose of this article was to describe the iterative development and scale-up of the Healthy Together program that was designed to engage families in an interactive program to support healthy lifestyles.
We describe the evolution of Healthy Together from Phase 1 through 3 to shed light on processes shaping implementation and scale-up of the program. Lessons learned during each phase were used to refine the program and further expansion. Indicators of successful scale-up include the Healthy Together program’s cross-jurisdictional reach and promising evaluation results in real-world conditions.
We're very proud of our team for their hard work and success at the publication of this article in this peer-reviewed journal! Way to go!!
