Growing Together [electronic resource]

McDonough, Andrea
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
In a frenetic culture where skewed body image messages mislead the young and nutrition repeatedly loses out to convenience, children's physical and psychological well-being are increasingly at risk. In response to this alarming situation, psychologist Jodi R. Galin and registered dietitian Andrea McDonough have created Growing Together, a three-part kit designed to help educators, parents, caregivers, health professionals, and community leaders protect children from developing obesity and eating disorders. It consists of Watch Me Grow! Stop to Listen!, a 32-minute documentary-style video filled with authoritative information - including how to recognize "red flags" that may signal a need for professional attention - as well as tips, tactics, and ideas; a supplemental guidebook that elaborates on ideas presented in the video; and Healthy Kids! Healthy Bodies! Help children grow into their own healthy size with Growing Together! Correlates to the National Standards for Family and Consumer Sciences Education from the Family and Consumer Sciences Education Association and the National Health Education Standards from the Joint Committee on National Health Education Standards.
