Who's the New Kid? by Heidi Bond

I received this book from Litfuse in exchange for a fair and honest review

Who's the New Kid by Heidi Bond
ISBN: 9781496402141
Hardcover - 320 pages

Who’s the New Kid? shows readers how Heidi helped her daughter lose weight without the aid of fad diets, medication, or surgery and how other parents can do the same with their kids.
At nine years old, Breanna Bond weighed a whopping 186 pounds. Just walking up the stairs to her room was a challenge. Her legs chafed to the point of bleeding from rubbing against each other, and her school days were filled with taunts of “Hey, Fatty!” Breanna’s mom, Heidi, was devastated and wondered, How can I get my daughter healthy again?
In just over a year, Heidi’s plan worked! Breanna dropped 40 percent of her body weight and was transformed from a morbidly obese child who spent her days in front of the TV eating chips and chocolate to a vibrant, healthy, energetic little girl.
Filled with helpful diagnostic tools, easy-to-make recipes, eye-opening nutritional information, fun exercise ideas, and practical tips and advice, Who’s the New Kid? will not only show parents how to help their kids lose weight naturally but also introduce them to simple, yet effective lifestyle changes that will benefit the entire family.
I wanted to read this book because my daughter is starting to go through some of the same issues and I thought it would be a good book for the both of us to read. I thought it would be nice to see another person’s thoughts and experiences on these issues. For me it is hard to see your child go through things like this and know there is not much you can do other then try and help and be supportive. I like how this was geared towards both adults and young adults. I feel as if both can read it and get a lot out of it. I also like that there were menu plans, recipes and an exercise program included. For me this book was well written and very easy to read. I thought it was informative. I also like how the author/mom used complete honesty when writing this and telling her daughter’s story.  All in all a very informative and uplifting book to read.
