Overview

If your teenager or younger child spends too much time playing video games, watching television, and loading up on junk foods, this book is for you!

Diabetes-Free Kids addresses the burgeoning epidemic of type 2 diabetes among youth by setting out an easy and doable action plan parents can use to try to prevent the illness and to better manage it. This guide shows parents how crucial exercise and proper nutrition are for fighting type 2 diabetes. It provides a clear plan for diet and exercise that will get even the pickiest eaters to enjoy healthier, yet satisfying, meals and snacks and that will motivate even the most sedentary youth to start moving.

This updated and expanded program includes:
• guidelines for foods kids should avoid or eat more of;
• tips for making over meals and snacks into delicious, healthier options;
• fun (and doable) physical activities;
• easy, structured exercise routines; and
• useful tips about diabetes medications and supplements.

A wealth of practical information in the book helps parents get their children to safely and effectively lose weight and lower their blood glucose levels—and possibly even reverse diabetes for good.
