A matter of perception: Are our kids "just right" when it comes to weight?

As health and wellness practitioners, we see kids of all shapes and sizes each day. And our job is to try to help them be healthy now and in the future. We face some challenges with this mission in mind, when parents and children alike don't recognize that there's a problem. A recent study reveals that the parents of overweight and obese children usually think their child's size "just right." Check out this article to see how frequently this is an issue. Meanwhile, we're going to keep putting our all into teaching our patient families how to take the best care possible of their bodies.
