Taking Steps Together
Mission, Vision, Values
To help individuals and families gain and practice the skills they need to live healthier lives.
We see a healthier world where obesity in both adults and children is significantly reduced and where prevention is the main form of treatment.
We help obese children and their families achieve healthy lifestyles through education and practice.
Our goal is to alter the lives of those who participate. Fun and delicious are our hallmarks. We strive to create experiences and share information that permanently change the way participants live because they value the results it brings.
We embrace the cultural and economic differences of those who partake whether as participants, volunteers or staff. Each brings perspectives and experiences that enrich the program and broaden our understanding
We embrace reliable teaching methods and proven evaluation techniques by partnering with experts to deliver an effective program with measureable results at a reasonable cost.
Taking Steps Together (TST) is a nutrition and healthy lifestyle education program for families who are living with or are concerned about childhood obesity. Through weekly goal-setting, families will work toward healthy lifestyle changes. Families will share their experiences, learn from each other and contribute to the growth of the program.
Families are referred by their primary care provider within the Hennipen County Medical Center (HCMC) system in Minneapolis, MN. Classes are facilitated by pediatric and nutrition health professionals in English and Spanish. Through 17-week long courses, families learn how to be more active, prepare and eat healthier foods, and enjoy family time. We are thrilled the data show our program works!
