A Take-Charge Plan for Preventing and Treating Type 2 Diabetes in Youth
NEW--Updated and Expanded edition, 2012
Foreword by Jerry Mathers, "The Beaver"
If your teenager or younger child spends too much time playing video games, watching television, and loading up on junk foods, this book is for you!
Diabetes-Free Kids addresses the burgeoning epidemic of type 2 diabetes among youth by setting out an easy and doable action plan parents can use to try to prevent the illness and to better manage it. This guide shows parents how crucial exercise and proper nutrition are for fighting type 2 diabetes. It provides a clear plan for diet and exercise that will get even the pickiest eaters to enjoy healthier, yet satisfying, meals and snacks and that will motivate even the most sedentary youth to start moving.
This updated and expanded program includes:
guidelines for foods kids should avoid or eat more of;
tips for making over meals and snacks into delicious, healthier options;
fun (and doable) physical activities;
easy, structured exercise routines; and
useful tips about diabetes medications and supplements.
A wealth of practical information in the book helps parents get their children to safely and effectively lose weight and lower their blood glucose levels—and possibly even reverse diabetes for good.

“As someone with diabetes and a father of
three, I am deathly afraid of where our society is going
and the implications for our future generations. Parents,
educators, society, and the media have a huge role to play
in rehabitualizing our way of life to stop the diabetes
epidemic. Diabetes-Free Kids is a great primer to teach
us what we need to know to raise a healthier generation
