Diabetes-Free Kids
A Take-Charge Plan for Preventing and Treating Type 2 Diabetes in Youth

NEW--Updated and Expanded edition, 2012

Foreword by Jerry Mathers, "The Beaver"

If your teenager or younger child spends too much time playing video games, watching television, and loading up on junk foods, this book is for you! Diabetes-Free Kids addresses the burgeoning epidemic of type 2 diabetes among youth by setting out an easy and doable action plan parents can use to try to prevent the illness and to better manage it. This guide shows parents how crucial exercise and proper nutrition are for fighting type 2 diabetes. It provides a clear plan for diet and exercise that will get even the pickiest eaters to enjoy healthier, yet satisfying, meals and snacks and that will motivate even the most sedentary youth to start moving.

This updated and expanded program includes:

  • guidelines for foods kids should avoid or eat more of;
  • tips for making over meals and snacks into delicious, healthier options;
  • fun (and doable) physical activities;
  • easy, structured exercise routines; and
  • useful tips about diabetes medications and supplements.
  • A wealth of practical information in the book helps parents get their children to safely and effectively lose weight and lower their blood glucose levels—and possibly even reverse diabetes for good.

    Reviews of Diabetes-Free Kids (2005 edition):

    ”An essential book for those who want to take control and fight back against diabetes.”
    Francine Kaufman, M.D., Director of the Comprehensive Childhood Diabetes Center at Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, professor of pediatrics at the University of Southern California, and author of Diabesity

    “As someone with diabetes and a father of three, I am deathly afraid of where our society is going and the implications for our future generations. Parents, educators, society, and the media have a huge role to play in rehabitualizing our way of life to stop the diabetes epidemic. Diabetes-Free Kids is a great primer to teach us what we need to know to raise a healthier generation of Americans.”
    Howard Steinberg, CEO and Founder of dLife - For Your Diabetes Life
