Editorial Reviews

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, "obesity threatens the health of today''s children to such an extent that they may, for the first time in history, have a shorter lifespan than their parents." Weight Watchers here offers a title for the whole family on ways to incorporate a healthy lifestyle, promote positive body image, and develop a taste for wholesome, nutritious food. Outlining the "five simple rules" for a healthy weight, coupled with identifying your parenting style and then outlining "ten healthy messages to send your kids about eating," this is an excellent offering for all families, not just those who suffer weight problems. Recipes, obviously, are included. Even if your shelves are bursting with Weight Watchers titles, consider adding this one. It realistically walks a fine line between understanding the hurried dynamics of most families today and maintaining a healthy focus on food as a family affair. Highly recommended.
