"A well-researched, highly critical, but carefully balanced examination of everyday assumptions about childhood obesity and its prevention from an intensely moral perspective. Although the authors demonstrate that no intervention is without ethical complications or effective entirely on its own, they call for immediate actions to reduce the stigma of childhood obesity, support parents, and create food environments healthier for children, adults, and the environment." Marion Nestle, Paulette Goddard Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health, NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development

"This is an excellent and groundbreaking book. The emphasis on the empirical uncertainty and normative disagreement concerning childhood obesity, the comprehensive analysis of the obesogenic environment and the examination of weight stigma constitute its most original contributions." Matteo Bonotti, Global Discourse
"Well researched (over 500 references!), clearly written, and cogently argued, this is an excellent book. [...] Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above." Choice
