Childhood obesity has reached epidemic proportions: More than 18 million American children are considered obese and are at risk for health problems. In fact, today’s generation of kids may be the first to experience shorter life spans than their parents.
Leading pediatrician Dr. Joanna Dolgoff's Red Light, Green Light, Eat Right teaches kids how to make healthy choices based on the principles of the traffic light: green light foods are nutritious, yellow light foods are eaten in moderation, and red light foods are occasional treats.
The program, which has a proven 96 percent success rate, can be tailored to suit any child’s age, gender, and weight goals. Snacks and meals are designed to ensure that kids get the nutrients they need to not only lose or maintain weight, but to grow strong, healthy bodies. Complete with sample menus, recipes, and an index of more than 1,000 color-coded foods, Red Light, Green Light, Eat Right provides a practical solution for one of the biggest health crises facing America’s children.
""Red Light, Green Light, Eat Right is a smart, creative way to start changing a growing problem in America. It gives kids and their parents a fun way to learn and apply healthy knowledge to everyday activities. I can't wait to share it with my own kids one day!"" –Ali Vincent, winner of The Biggest Loser and author of Believe It, Be It
“Finally, a medically-sound weight reduction program that will improve the health of our children and promote life-long healthy food choices. Dr. Dolgoff’s Red Light, Green Light, Eat Right will turn the tide of the obesity epidemic we confront daily in our practices. Highly recommended!” –Joseph Levy, M.D., Professor, NYU School of Medicine, Department of Pediatrics
