Description
You Can't Escape the Headlines. You Can't Avoid the Facts. Childhood obesity has reached crisis proportions. The future health of an entire generation is at risk. Underage & Overweight, written by childhood obesity expert Frances Berg, clearly lays out the causes of childhood obesity, its consequences, and cures. The first step in winning the battle for our children's well-being is understanding the full scope of the problem, and then taking action. Meticulously researched and accessible to the lay reader, the book examines the very real dangers of obesity, the consequences of sedentary living, the causes of dysfunctional eating, and how family life and our schools have contributed to the problem. Underage & Overweight provides fresh new perspectives on how to solve the crisis and gives parents, educators, and health care workers concrete steps to lead all of America's children to happier and healthier lives. This heartfelt call for public awareness, understanding, and action will surely become a landmark work in our country's war against childhood obesity. Book jacket.
