Acerca de


As America has grown into a heavier, more sedentary nation, so have its kids.

20 millionon--fully one-quarter--of American children are overweight, with 11% severely obese.

36% of our children aged 2 to 19 have high cholesterol.

66% of 5- to 17-year-olds fail to meet minimum fitness criteria.

Knowing what he does about the connection between diet, exercise, and health, lay expert Joseph C. Piscatella is alarmed. Author of Don't Eat Your Heart Out Cookbook and other books for adults with over 2 million copies in print, Mr. Piscatella now turns to motivating parents to reverse the dangerous trend of overweight, out-of-shape kids. A compelling, comprehensive source book and diet and exercise guide, Fat-Proof Your Child spells out the whys of the problemo--from too much fast food to too much television, diminishing Phys Ed programs to inexcusably fatty school lunches--then offers easy-to-implement solutions that will get not only kids but also parents back on the right track.

Here are 7 Basics that will improve a child's food habits; the Activity Pyramid for children and adolescents; up-to-date research on fat, sugar, salt, and fiber; and, from his wife, Bernie, over 100 recipes that modify favorite family dishes.

From the Back Cover:

Everything parents need to know to raise fit kids in a fat world. How to use 7 Basic Rules to improve your childo_s eating habits. How to make fast food your friend. How to motivate kids to exercise and be more active. How to choose the best convenience food , breakfast foods, snacks. How to give your child a lifelong taste for healthy food. How to adapt favorite family recipes. Plus: kid-friendly recipes and menus.

Roberts, M.D.,* Executive Director, Baylor University Cardiovascular Institute, Editor in Chief, The American Journal of Cardiology)
