Get a Healthy Weight For Your Child
Our society contains millions of children who are categorised as either overweight or obese, and the numbers continue to increase. Kids are consuming too many calories - many of which are from convenience and fast foods - and they are getting too little exercise. These super-sized kids now suffer from adult diseases such as Type 2 Diabetes, Hypertension, High Cholesterol and even Strokes. This book is designed to help parents to treat and prevent childhood obesity by using information and methods based on the best scientific evidence available rather than on potentially dangerous fad diets and exercise routines. Recent government statistics showed that 37 per cent of children aged 2 to 11 were overweight, and about 18 per cent were clinically obese. And...about twice as many boys as girls are in that latter category. Just look around you. This book contains a complete background on the fundamentals of good nutrition, and a programme to help parents and children to work together to achieve a healthy weight.
