Slim & Fit Kids – Raising Healthy Children in a Fast-Food World

Slim & Fit Kids – Raising Healthy Children in a Fast-Food World

This book, written by a nutritionist and a pediatrician, covers child obesity, diseases and disorders, nutritional guidelines for different age groups and how parents can put all this in place for a healthy child.

Review: Child obesity has become a major concern all over the world. Although I am thanking my lucky stars I have not had to deal with this problem, I do have a friend who is fighting this with her child though and I wanted to try and help her. When I saw this book and that it was written by two professionals in the field I decided to buy it for her. She has thanked me every day since.

I have read over some of this book. It is well written and leaves nothing to wonder. From how child obesity can cause disease and disorders in a child that can last the rest of their lives to how to handle an obese child, this book really does cover it all.

The chapters in this book break down all the problems of childhood obesity. From an overview to how parents can put these ideas in place, you won’t miss anything. There is even a section on how parents can find a routine for their child and then put it in place and make it stick.

It breaks down children in age groups. I thought this was pretty important because what may work for my friend whose child is a teenager won’t work for someone who has a 4 year old. It also helped in explaining how depression and obesity go together especially in teenagers. This brought to light for my friend why her child was so withdrawn and how food played a part in that.

This book has helped my friend and her family. They have found a common ground and it seems to be working for them. Whether it’s your child or someone else’s child that is going through child obesity I think this book will help. It’s straight forward, easy to comprehend and gives you a lot of insight into the whys of child obesity. When it comes to the children of world we need to be educated and ready for anything. This book will definitely give you that in one of the most important aspects of a child’s life – their health.
