An apple a day, keeps the doctor away

This one’s for the kiddies… 

With eating disorders at an all time high, it is important to keep a monitored eye out on your children and their struggles in daily life. A recent study from the National Eating Disorders Association and Global Market Institute Inc. found that 20 percent of college students ranging from freshman to post baccalaureate are suffering from eating disorders. Over thirty percent are said to be male and over sixty percent are female. The peak onset of eating disorders occurs during puberty and the late teen/early adult years, but symptoms can occur as young as kindergarten.  Although, there may be a number of reasons for your child to develop any eating disorder such as stress in family, the pressures of the world to be thin, or other psychological problems, getting help is of number one importance, along with positive support and help from family and friends.

  Take care of your children, and take care of yourself. The #1 role model your child has, is you!
