Diabetes-Free Kids: A Take-Charge Plan for Preventing and Treating Type 2 Diabetes in Children

by Sheri Colberg, Ph.D. with Mary Friesz, Ph.D., R.D. —

The authors address the growing epidemic of type 2 diabetes (formerly called adult-onset diabetes) among children, and provide parents with an action plan for stopping it in its tracks.

They show how clearly the links are between the rise in obesity among our children and the riseing incidence of type 2 diabetes.

They provide the tools and knowledge needed and lay out a clear plan for diet and exercise that will allow even the pickiest eaters to enjoy healthier yet satisfying meals and snacks.

They also show how to motivate the most sedentary children to put down the PlayStation controller and start moving.

The book takes parents through the process of diabetes prevention, step-by-step. With a little commitment and a willingness to make some small lifestyle changes, this plan can make all the difference in a child’s life and keep them healthy and happy.
