1. The column talks about how all though it's good we're targeting obesity in youth, we're not doing it correctly. Rather than make them feel bad about it, trick them into losing weight.
2. Main Points
a. The idea was to shock parents into action, yet many felt that the harsh ads and billboards only underscored the message to children that being fat isn't okay.
b. Don't focus on lowering your child's weight
c. Bring back the habit of eating at home
d. Use smaller plates--for instantly smaller portions
e. Don't make any food "forbidden fruit."
f. Teach your child to listen to his body and hunger cues
g. But do make sure your child feels satisfied once he's eaten
h. Model healthy behavior
i. Encourage activity
3. All though it's a good idea to keep kids weight down, you can't just force them.
4. The author does not directly state their opinion on the matter, but it's obvious to tell through the evidence that they believe that there are way that you should use to lower child obesity.
6. The author is mostly likely a mother concerned for the obesity in youth, and feels forcing it isn't the option.
7. This column was defintitly made for parents of children who love to eat.
8. Based on the evidence provided, I could say that the author has convinced me about using these much more productive methods of keeping a childs weight down.
The author has so much logos writing in this column that it's not even funny. When they say "You're fat, which makes you unacceptable. Not what a kid's self-esteem needs." Their exactly right, no child wants to hear that they need to lose weight. They would rather not know that your helping them lose weight rather than know that you're noticing the tummy they have. When the auther says, "Forbidding anything outright causes most of us to want it all the more," he is telling us that we all think this and that it's normal and going to happen. The author has a ethos moment when they say, "The more you limit it, the more your child is forced to find another way (soccer with the neighbor, a game of hide and seek with his sister) to entertain himself." They are telling us about how one way or another they'll find a way to entertain themselves should you keep them full by following step numbers five and six.
Among the multiple factors that can cause obesity is an abnormal neurocognitive or behavioral response to food cues. The brain becomes wired to seek — and expect — greater rewards from food, which leads to unhealthful overeating.Attention modification programs, which train a person to ignore or disregard specific, problematic cues or triggers, have been used effectively to treat cases of anxiety and substance abuse. In a novel study published this week in the journal Appetite, Kerri Boutelle, PhD, professor of pediatrics and psychiatry at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, and colleagues report using a single session of attention modification to decrease overeating in obese children.”Attentional bias is a long-studied psychological phenomenon,” said Boutelle. “Attentional bias to food means that food grabs a person’s attention. If two people were in a room with potato chips on the table, the person with attentional bias would be paying attention to, maybe looking at, the chips and the person without the bias would not really notice or pay attention to them.”We believe that there is a group of people who are inherently sensitive to food cues and, over time, eating in response to paying attention to food makes them pay even more attention. It’s based on Pavlovian conditioning.”Obesity in the United States is a well-documented problem, with more than a third of American adults considered to be obese. Child obesity is equally alarming, with an estimated one-third of American children (4 to 5 million individuals) overweight or obese. These children are at greater risk for cardiovascular disease, cancer, orthopedic and endocrine conditions and more likely to die earlier.Boutelle and colleagues investigated whether attention modification training might be another way to treat problematic eating and obesity in children. In a novel pilot study, they recruited 24 overweight and obese children between the ages of 8 and 12 and split them into two groups.One group underwent an attention modification program (AMP) in which they watched pairs of words quickly flash upon a computer screen. One was a food word, such as “cake;” the other was a non-food word, such as “desk.” After the words had flashed and disappeared, a letter appeared on-screen in the place of either the food word or the non-food word. … http://www.mybiologica.com/45956/good-living/child-obesity-using-attention-modification-program-to-decrease-overeating-in-obese-children.html

Programs aimed at increasing the physical activity of children have failed to get kids moving much, says a new study. That failure to boost how much kids walk, run, jump and otherwise move around during the day helps explain why the programs also have failed to put a dent in child obesity, say researchers who pooled results from 30 studies for the new study published Thursday in the BMJ.
