We are living in a generation where more and more children will become obese, thanks for Mc Donalds, KFCs, Burger King, American style pizza, super size me as the American way.. It is definitely a big problem, especially to lookout for children, many parent try to look out for their children's weight, and bring up the problem the wrong way, making children's feel offended and angry at the parent.
This book offers amazing insight from start to finish on exactly what to do to solve this problem.
Definitely worth reading,especially for those who has an obese child.
Love the fact the author addresses the need for parents to first understand what obesity is before dealing with talking to their kids about it. Too many parents don't understand what "healthy" is because they aren't healthy themselves. This book does an excellent job educating parents on obesity so they can help positively guide their kids.
The links are great and the information flows start to finish with plenty for everyone to learn.
I recommend this book. Read it and let the author know your thoughts!
A must read if you want your child to grow up healthy!
This book is useful in terms of how to talk to your child when addressing the obesity topic. It makes clear to absolutely give priority to health over appearance. Furthermore you get some background information about the causes and possible long-term consequences of child obesity. Besides it covers nutrition and activity-level aspects you need to be aware of to ultimately incorporate a long-term healthy lifestyle. Highly recommended!
