New kids book encourages “diet”

Been wanting to write about this. Check out this new book that Barnes & Noble recommends for kiddos 6-12. It’s called Maggie Goes on  Diet and shows an overweight girl holding a small dress and looking into a mirror. Her reflection is a skinny Maggie.

The story of the 14-year-old takes her from being overweight to exercising and eating right to losing weight and becoming a soccer star at school. Good habits start early so I can see why a story like this could inspire someone to try to lead a healthier life. Critics says it sends the wrong message with the picture of Maggie holding the small dress. They say it puts more emphasis on being “skinny” rather than “healthy.”
