Kids: Trying to Trim Down

Among the experts interviewed for Kids: Trying to Trim Down are Dr. Gerald Berenson, the lead researcher in the Bogalusa Heart Study; Pediatrician Dr. Stewart Gordon; and Heidi Schumacher and Melinda Southern, the authors of the book Trim Kids. The documentary examines the importance of watching how much kids eat, monitoring a child's activity level, and understanding the cause of their overeating. Children discuss the difficulties they encounter because of their weight, everything from being teased to developing Type II Diabetes while parents talk about their difficulty in coming to grips with the problem and the sense of relief they felt when they decided to take action.
