The Samen Slim (Slim Together) Team was set up to make overweight children fit again in a healthy way.

What is the Slim Together Team?

The team consists of:

  • paediatrician Dr. Hilde Boens
  • dieticians Heleen Castelyn & Sophie Delputte
  • psychologist Joy Vandenberghe & Sieglinde Vandamme
  • physiotherapist Noor Maelfait

Together they assist overweight children and both their parents. The child is guided towards a healthier approach to food habits and lifestyle.

The team focuses on overweight children aged 4 to 16.

Getting the overweight child back into shape in a healthy way does not necessarily mean losing weight. The most important adaptations are learning healthy eating habits, changing to an active lifestyle and gaining a positive self-image.
