Child Obesity free pdf Is your child overweight? Do you worry about the effects of excess weight on the health and self-esteem of your family's youngest and most vulnerable members? If so, you are not alone. Weight problems among children have now reached epidemic proportions. And its no wonder. High-calorie fast foods and soft drinks are everywhere, and they are heavily promoted in many of the 40,000 TV commercials that kids watch every year. A nationally recognised expert on child obesity, Dr. Roa uses the latest and best medical evidence available to show you how to help your child avoid or overcome this prevalent and dangerous health problem. In the first part, he gives you the knowledge you need to understand the scope of the problem. In the second part, he carefully explains a rational approach to helping your child achieve or maintain a healthy weight, including the science of changing people's behaviour. Dr. Roa makes it clear that despite all the talk about 'low-carb' and other fad diets, there are no magic bullets for treating childhood obesity. But the good news is that armed with the right information, parents can reverse this dangerous trend and succeed in helping their children become fit, trim and happy.
