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.
