Childhood obesity is a serious problem anywhere, putting children and adolescents at risk for poor health. The prevalence of childhood obesity has increased over few years. Hence, effective intervention strategies are being used to prevent and control obesity in children.
The purpose of this book is to focus on the lives, questions, and concerns of parents and children living in a childhood obesity crisis.
Unlike most books about weight, however, this book powerfully combines interviews, relevant research, social anecdotes, personal author accounts, and the reality of children struggling with weight, to create a narrative that is profoundly poignant, accessible, and essential for understanding our current war on fat. Here in with its empathetic point of view, raw emotion, and solid information, is a necessary voice in the literary scene.
