Fighting FatStreaming Video - 2009
The number one predictor of obesity in children is an overweight parent-but genes are only part of the story. This program reports on the health and happiness of five toddlers who are part of a large-scale longitudinal study in child development. Highlighting the issue of childhood obesity, the program asks: Why are a rising number of children overweight and how does parenting make a difference? Could the way Lulu's father disciplines her be the key to keeping her fit? Is Shine a high-risk candidate for obesity simply because her parents are broke? What does Joshua's ancestry reveal about his chances for slimness? And how can Ben, a premature baby and the tiniest of toddlers, be in danger of becoming an obese adult?
