A Matter of Fat: Understanding and Overcoming Obesity in Kids
"In this timely book, with cartoons by Richard Collins, renowned nutritionist Rosemary Stanton and prominent exercise scientist Andrew Hills provide answers to common questions about overweight and obesity in children. They give the facts about body fat, good eating and healthy activities, and look at the risks, the definitions, and at what is 'normal' in a society obsessed with slimness, yet where people grow steadily fatter." "A Matter of Fat is packed with practical solutions to help families facing weight problems. The book's premise is that good food is delicious and doesn't have to be fattening, and that there are fun ways to be more active. The guidelines provided are sensible, enjoyable and based on sound science."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
