It is addressed primarily to mothers of obese children but is written for the child and the child’s family as well and presents diet and other lifestyle changes as a solution to the problem.

About the Author

John E. Monaco, MD received his undergraduate education at Union College in Schenectady, NY and went on to attend medical school at the University of Buffalo, from which he graduated with honors in Pediatrics. He did his pediatric residency and served as chief resident in Pediatrics at Orlando Regional Medical center (Arnold Palmer Children’s Hospital). From there he completed a pediatric critical care fellowship at Shands Hospital at the University of Florida. In the 1990s he started one of the first community hospital based pediatric intensive care units in the country at Audubon Hospital in Louisville, KY, then returning to Florida where he worked as a pediatric hospitalist and intensivist at Brandon Hospital outside of Tampa. He was one of the first authors in health care to identify the approaching childhood obesity epidemic in his book SLIM AND FIT KIDS: RAISING HEALTHY CHILDREN IN A FAST FOOD WORLD. In 2005, he published MOONDANCE TO ETERNITY, a memoir based on his experiences caring for dying children. Most recently, he teamed up with actress/producer/talk show host Ricki Lake in an updated approach to the childhood obesity epidemic entitled TOO SMALL TO BE BIG, THE ALLSTRIDE SOLUTION. In addition to his demanding clinical schedule, he writes a weekly blog for allstride and a monthly column entitled Kids in Hospitals in PEDIATRICS FOR PARENTS. He speaks to groups on topics important to parents raising children. Dr. Monaco has appeared on several TV talk shows including appearances on the Ricki Lake Show and the Joy Behar Show.
