The bestselling authors of Never Say Diet! and Never Say Diet! 7 Days a Week are back! In their latest effort, nutritionist Judy Toews and journalist Nicole Parton tackle the good, bad and just plain ugly influences on children's relationships with food. Childhood obesity has doubled in the last 20 years. While some kids are getting too heavy, millions of others who are at a healthy weight are dissatisfied with their bodies. Experts blame the confusing world in which we live for the increasing incidence of childhood weight and body-image concerns.

A combination of easy-to-read science and practical how-to's, Raising Happy, Healthy, Weight-wise Kids offers solid information, down-to-earth advice, and years of personal experience. You'll learn that: - Kids are not little adults - they have their own nutritional needs. - The best time to plan for a healthy child with no hang-ups about size and shape is before conception. The second best time is right now. - One medium cabbage will serve six adults or 297 preschoolers. Written with a sense of humour that will get you through even the most challenging of times, Raising Happy, Healthy, Weight-wise Kids is essential reading for real people trying to raise real kids in the real world.
