David Camposis an associate professor of education at the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, Texas.


“In the rich tradition of a child-centered curriculum, David Campos presents a useful, comprehensive, and clear resource for keeping children physically and psychologically healthy. Providing a rich context for a ‘well being’ perspective, he guides teachers, parents, and the community through understanding the necessity for all adults to ensure a nurturing environment for every age child.”

Mari Koerner, Professor and Dean, Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College, Arizona State University


“This how-to manual is a panoply of original lesson plans and practical strategies for eradicating the poor dietary and exercise habits that are diminishing the health and wellness of our society. This book is a definitive guide for restoring and maintaining one of our most precious commodities:the health and well-being of our children.”

La Vonne I. Neal, Northern Illinois University, Dean, College of Education


“Dr. Campos has made a valuable contribution to the national discussion regarding how we, as a country, can effectively address the evolving tragedy of the childhood obesity epidemic.”
