Tackling childhood obesity, one child at a time
It can be tempting to hope that a child's overeating is "just a phase", says New York psychotherapist Dr Michelle Maidenberg. But the price of inaction is too high. In a new book, Free Your Child from Overeating. 53 Mind-Body Strategies For Lifelong Health, she offers ways to build a child's confidence that they have the power to change. Here Dr Maidenberg answers MercatorNet's questions about her book and the global epidemic that is undermining the health and happiness of nearly a third of the human race.
