Thanks to Litfuse for sending me a copy of Who’s the New Kid. All opinions listed are 100% my own.
Who’s the New Kid? shows readers how Heidi helped her daughter lose weight without the aid of fad diets, medication, or surgery and how other parents can do the same with their kids.
At nine years old, Breanna Bond weighed a whopping 186 pounds. Just walking up the stairs to her room was a challenge. Her legs chafed to the point of bleeding from rubbing against each other, and her school days were filled with taunts of “Hey, Fatty!” Breanna’s mom, Heidi, was devastated and wondered, How can I get my daughter healthy again?
In just over a year, Heidi’s plan worked! Breanna dropped 40 percent of her body weight and was transformed from a morbidly obese child who spent her days in front of the TV eating chips and chocolate to a vibrant, healthy, energetic little girl.
Filled with helpful diagnostic tools, easy-to-make recipes, eye-opening nutritional information, fun exercise ideas, and practical tips and advice, Who’s the New Kid? will not only show parents how to help their kids lose weight naturally but also introduce them to simple, yet effective lifestyle changes that will benefit the entire family.
Every mother wants what is best for their child. When I read this book, I felt such compassion for Heidi. When my kids were little, I remember going to the doctor for their health and well check and the doctor would always tell me that according to the scale, my kids were too fat.
I would look at my children and think — they are not fat at all! In fact, the could stand to gain a few pounds. So — with my motherly instinct, I did what was best for my kids and I am glad that I did.
I think the same thing can be said of Heidi as she finally got on the bandwagon and helped her daughter beat the odds of obesity.
This is a very inspiring book of how a mother and a daughter worked together to shed pounds and get her eating and weight under control.
I urge everyone to read this book.
