Children And Teens Afraid To Eat – Helping Youth In Today’s Weight-Obsessed World

Documenting the overwhelming physical and mental effects of the pressure to be thin, this book examines the way weight obsession destroys America’s youth. It describes four major weight and eating problems—eating disorders, dysfunctional eating, size prejudice, and being overweight—and shows healthy ways to change. A valuable resource for parents, teachers, and health professionals, it explains new ways to nurture children and prevent weight problems.
