MEND 7-13 offers post-Program support to help families maintain their healthy lifestyle changes and assist the children in achieving a healthier weight. MEND 7-13 recommends local activities that meet the needs of MEND families and takes into consideration local educational resources and partnership opportunities. This may include weekly exercise sessions for MEND graduates for the first few months, with the aim of transitioning families to local community activities that support a healthy and active lifestyle. Activities include swimming, sports or other physical activity programs, healthy eating and cooking classes, and use of local facilities such as parks, playgrounds and YMCAs. Additional MEND graduate activities and resources are in development and will be available soon.
