Anna Burns is supernanny for your kitchen. Her book sets out to equip parents with the very simple tools needed to stop this current (and undeniable) trend: our kids are getting fat and it is our job as parents to change this. She says:
‘I cannot count the number of overweight clients who have told me they were fat as a child. As a result, they often expect to be overweight for life. To avoid this mentality in later life never put your child on a diet, even if they are overweight now.
My book, The Food Nanny, will show parents how to correct any poor eating habits so you can watch them grow into their own natural weight and maintain it for life – no dieting, no hunger, no hardship guaranteed’.
The rules are simple: say ‘no’ to food; eat only at the table; persist in getting them to eat fruit and vegetables; don’t buy organic; if you can name it, you can consider it; say ‘no’ to passive consumption; eat only when you feel hungry; get moving; just portion control it. The Food Nanny is here to show you how to implement these rules and prevent a frighteningly fat future for your family.
The Food Nanny is published by Gill Books on 28 December 2012, priced at €12.99.
