It’s not easy to talk with kids about weight; it’s not easy to talk about weight with anyone for that matter. Recently, our Team ABC3 Project Leader, Amy McPherson was interviewed by Today’s Parent about tips and perspectives on how to talk with your kids about their weight in the hopes to help them develop better lifestyle habits.

Amy suggests not focusing on weight itself and instead encourage kids to live a healthy lifestyle.

“In this culture, weight is equated with a kind of negative quality about the person. But it’s crucial to start talking about it form an early age in terms of health rather than focusing on the number on the scale.”

Check out the full interview here.

Keep it up, Amy!
