Dr Newmark-Sztainer has written a wonderful book to guide parents through the triple threat of adolescent children in a food-toxic and weight-obsessed culture. Dr Newmark-Sztainer is a researcher and professor at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health and has been the principal investigator for Project EAT (Eating Among Teens). Her publications have included those on dietary practices and obesity of adolescents, weight control practices of adolescents, weight teasing and its potential implications, and family meals. She shares many of the findings from Project EAT in this very readable and enjoyable book.
