Childhood obesity is an epidemic. Obesity is an epidemic. And we need to stop this epidemic before more children and adults become unhealthy.
I am not a nutritionist. I am a Developmental Psychologist who, for all my professional life, has advocated for good nutrition – because I want all humans to develop as optimally as they can. And they do that best when they have good fuel [nutritious food] for their development!
This is especially true for the youngest among us who are at the start of a long process of developing – and who will ultimately become the adults of our culture.
In this book I give you information about obesity in general and about childhood obesity in particular – and let you know what this is doing to our children and to us as adults.
I write about food – what we eat, how much we eat, what’s in it and how to read labels so that you become a more intelligent consumer.
I add information about the importance of good nutrition for our development – especially cognitive development.
And I offer some suggestions on how to prevent childhood obesity – and what I suggest works for adults too!
I conclude with some historical ideas about food and in an Appendix, I include information about my parenting book and website and about synthetic vitamins/supplements and ones made with real food.
