Overfeeding

Overfeeding


Overfeeding – interfering with our natural mechanism of saying “I’m full!”

It all starts in our childhood – “eat everything from your plate”, and it goes on in adolescence – bigger soda cups, bigger ham/cheese burgers, “all you can eat” buffet, sugar in everything ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4CZ81EmAsw ) and it goes on as adults – eating disorders, obesity epidemic, diabetes, you name another one .

Don’t make your child join the “clean-plate” club.

“This is a mistake and the worries are unnecessary because no child – unless he or she is suffering from anorexia nervosa – will ever starve to death if food is available.” Dr.Robert S. Mendelsohn – “How to Raise a Healthy Child in Spite of Your Doctor”
