Childhood obesity rates are soaring in our nation with no end in sight. The epidemic has become so bad that 1 out of every 3 American children is either overweight or obese. Chronic health problems for overweight and obese children have begun to shoot through the roof. Adult diseases and problems formerly only seen in adults such as heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and even cancer are appearing in children with alarming frequency.

Learn the facts about this growing epidemic and what you can do to help your child and your family on the path toward a healthy lifestyle. The book contains easy to follow tips, snack suggestions that children will love and simple ways to get the whole family moving. The information will help you set your family on the path to a healthier and happier life.

Pam P. said, “I understand why I must take action to help my children get off of the coach, eating healthier snacks and foods and getting more exercise in their lives. This book has been a real eye-opener for me and one that has changed our family priorities.”

Barb W. said, “I definitely recommend this down to earth book if you have children or family members who are struggling with obesity. We have been having more fun as a family since we started paying attention to ways to exercise together. Our teenagers actually have started to talk to us a bit more instead of non-stop checking their phones. It has been a refreshing change.”
