Eat Up: Creating Healthy Food Habits That Will Last a LifetimeThe basic approach taken here is knowing the facts yourself, but there is a bit of a sense of passing the information along to your child so that he or she can take ownership as well. I supposed that some parents might feel guilty after reading this, knowing that their child eats too much sugar, watches too much TV, and is falling short in other areas as well, but I really did not feel the condemning attitude at all. I was left with a great sense of responsibility, knowing that it is my job to give my kids a head start on healthy habits that can increase their quality of life for the rest of their life. I felt like this book gave me the tools to actually do it.
