Are you worried about your child's extra weight? If so, you're not alone. Childhood obesity has reached epidemic levels in the United States, affecting more than 9 million children and teens. Being overweight can limit your child's physical activity and contribute to low self-esteem, but what's even more disturbing are the serious medical conditions and diseases that can develop as a result of being too heavy--like cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. How do you as a parent take steps to help your child lose weight? Like it or not, childhood obesity is not a problem that can be solved overnight. Even so, the message of this book is simple--you and your child can succeed. A Parent's Guide to Childhood Obesity: A Road Map to Health offers long-term strategies and expert advice along with worksheets, questionnaires, and other interactive tools to help your child reach and maintain a healthy weight. This comprehensive guide offers: *Sensible, nutritional information and guidelines, emphasizing balanced and nourishing meals *Strategies for dealing effectively with a variety of parenting challenges *Approaches for encouraging increased physical activity *Questionnaires to evaluate how food is used in families *Guidance on how to partner with pediatricians, extended family members, schools, and child care providers to help ensure success
