Parents rank their obese children as 'very healthy'

How can we help parents recognize their own children's obesity? "Parents have a hard time changing their child's dietary and physical activity behaviors," said the study's lead author. "Our study tells us what factors may be associated with a parent's motivation to help their child become more healthy."

This poster image makes the whole effort toward good health so much easier than without this image. Michael Pollan's eater's manual entitled Food Rules includes images with every Food Rule. StarChild Science's Healthy Living Initiative includes our Healthy Choices poster and flyer image in its animations for families and teachers as well as in its products. Businesses are telling us that when they put their logo on our Healthy Choices poster or flyer, families always remember their efforts to keep children focused on making healthy choices.
