Keeping Kids Active and Healthy


With the growing issue of childhood obesity, Meriter would like to remind children and adults that exercise is important and can be fun for the entire family. According to the CDC, childhood obesity has more than doubled in children in the past 30 years. Childhood obesity has both immediate and long-term effects on health and well-being.

Meriter would like to help reduce childhood obesity and we encourage you to visit us at the Madison Kid’s Expo on March 16 and 17 at the Alliant Energy Center. We are sponsoring the Healthy Activity Stage and our physicians and pediatric therapists will be presenting ways to stay active and healthy!
