In this guidebook, Eileen Behan, a registered dietitian for more than twenty-five years, has compiled all the advice we need to combat--and undo--damaging diet habits. This is a true lifesaver, giving parents the straight scoop for handling the tricky issue of childhood obesity and providing a sensible, step-by-step diet and activity plan so kids can lose weight safely, boost self-esteem, and strengthen family ties. Read this book--and do your kids a favor they will appreciate for the rest of their lives.
