Despite heightened awareness of the problem and advances in healthcare, present strategies are not working to reverse the trend. This book aims to honestly answer a couple of questions weighing on the minds of many parents in America today: How can I prevent or reverse obesity in my child or adolescent? How do I ensure that my child will not become obese during his or her lifetime?
Written by a registered dietitian and mother herself, The Poisoning of Our Children ~ Fighting the Obesity Epidemic in America contains practical advice that can be incorporated into a family’s daily life immediately. Based on credible research, it gives parents the knowledge and tools they need for raising healthy children from the start. And it provides pediatricians and health professionals with the evidence they need when working with families.
This book goes beyond the obvious problems of unhealthy eating and lack of physical activity; it closely examines the roles of modern-day American culture and lifestyle habits. Rather than offering a list of “do’s” and “don’ts,” the emphasis is on developing healthy habits to last a lifetime.
Children born in America today will live shorter lives than their parents and grandparents because of the obesity epidemic.
