A Healthy Weight A Story about Leticia and Her Family

Author: Channing Bete Company
Date Published: 2005

Her children's concern about her need to lose weight -- and reminders about her risk of diabetes if she doesn't -- prompts Leticia to accept her family's offer to create a meal that's lower in calories (and better tasting) than the fast food she'd originally planned to order. Instead of watching TV after supper, the family takes a walk -- underscoring that although habits may be hard to break, healthy changes can be made with the right support.
