Afraid to eat: children and teens in weight crisis
To be fat in today's society is to fail. It's a prejudice that keeps too many youngsters striving to be thinner. This book explores this growing public health crisis among children and presents new ways for parents, teachers, and health providers to approach these complex problems. Dysfunctional eating, eating disorders, being overweight, and size prejudice are some of the topics discussed and the causes of these problems -- declining activity, fast foods, early puberty, the impact of advertising -- are examined. "Afraid to Eat" condemns diets and focuses on moderation in eating and an active, playful lifestyle.
