Written with candour and humour, the "Sunscreen" series offers teens advice on the topics that interest them most in a compact, highly illustrated paperback that fits conveniently in a handback or backpack. Not too glib nor overly serious, the "Sunscreen" books deliver just the right information, and the freedom and protection that come with it. Weight and body image is perhaps the most popular issue facing youngsters today. Due to the unrealistic expectations of weight and beauty promoted on TV, in films, and in magazines, most children are unhappy with their bodies and are in need of a healthy way to go about making life changes. This "Sunscreen" book gives advice on ways to get help; by talking to their parents about their diet, seeing a dietician, and encouraging exercise or other fun, active pastimes. It also shows you how to calculate your Body Mass Index (BMI) to see if they really are overweight and need to make healthy changes. This title also gives good tips on dealing with the peer pressures surrounding weight issues.
