The F Word: A Guide to Preventing Childhood Obesity

$6.00

By Bill O'Brien, Rachael Taylor

The F Word is not written for academics. It is written for the understanding of ordinary Kiwi mums and dads concerned at the rising rates of obesity in children. To a parent concerned with preparing healthy diets for their children it is more important to know what is good and what is not so good. The F Word is about giving people a simple, non-complicated understanding of the part different foods play in preventing childhood obesity. Some quick reference handy hints are listed in the final chapter. The F Word has been written to help New Zealand parents and caregivers understand the complexities of this 'weighty' issue. By demystifying the 'fat' word and giving good, sound nutritional advice this book's aim is to simplify what can be a difficult topic to understand. Coupled with this is the need to encourage young people towards a long-term habit of physical activity. Sensible healthy eating and regular involvement in physical activity will go a long way to putting the brakes on the dangerous epidemic of childhood obesity. Because nutrition can be a complicated subject it is easy for lay people to find themselves somewhat in the dark. The F Word turns the light on and helps people successfully negotiate the minefield of nutrition. The research data quoted in this book is the very latest available and the text has been written with expert guidance from a variety of experts including the Human Nutrition department of the University of Otago.
