Addressing medical, emotional, and psychological factors, the sensible and tested guidelines help parents create balanced meals, encourage physical activity, and partner with pediatricians, family, schools, and child-care providers in their fight against obesity. A section on setbacks and detours addresses such challenges as sneaking food, snacking and grazing, and eating during the holidays. Self-assessment questionnaires, worksheets, and parent tips discuss age-specific obesity issues ranging from the prenatal period to age 21.
