Dr. William Sears has long been seen, along with Dr. Spock and Penelope Leach, as one of the leading pediatricians in the book business. Now all of the kids he helped as babies are older, and 15% of them (or about 9 million children, per USA Today 10/9/2002) are overweight. An even greater number are out of shape or unhappy about their physical appearance.

That's exactally why Dr. Sears has designed the L.E.A.N. PROGRAM FOR KIDS. This is the first publication by a brand name in the field of childcare that is offering a concrete program for overcoming the greatest health risks to school aged children: being overweight, underfit, and unhappy.

Written for parents to read by themselves or share with their children, L.E.A.N. PROGRAM FOR KIDS arms today's families with everything they need to overcome the dire statistics and lead a happy, healthy life.

I plowed right through this book! It was easy to read, understand, and apply. As a homeschooling parent and a person who is just interested in health and nutrition, I read this to gain insights about the foods we eat and ways to exercise with my kids. There are many excellent exercise ideas, lists of foods, and ways to encourage your children to grow into healthy people. The book does seem to be geared a little more toward families with obesity issues, but the theories are applicable to all regardless of weight or size.
