Does your child struggle with maintaining fitness? E Kidz, our health and fitness management program, uses a team-based approach to help each child find the right balance between calories consumed and calories burned.
The whole family is encouraged to participate. The goal is to help your child adopt life-long habits for achieving and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
The EKidz program motto is: Eat Wize – Exercize – Energize! The program involves both medical and diet advice from the doctor or nurse practitioner, and fitness tips from the EKidz moderator, Lindsay Deal. Lindsay has a B.A. in Health and Kinesiology from UT-Tyler.
Check out our weight management support group on Facebook, a great place to share information and get support from other parents. This group is facilitated by our ekidz staff member, Lindsy Deal. This group is intended to be a support network only; no medical advice will be distributed. Join today!

I highly recommend MD Pediatrics. As a mom, I love the way the physicians and nurses are so caring and kind to our children. They know their names by heart and talk to them in ways that make them feel comfortable. The physicians always listen to my questions, take their time and are not rushed, and the care that our children receive is superb. The follow up care is also very appreciated.
