This book is geared towards educators, teachers, administrators and parents of young children especially with health issues. The book will contribute to the literature in the field focusing on national and international concern about childhood obesity, highlighting the problems with obesity pre-diabetes, type 2 diabetes etc. Specifically, the book will provide research findings that children who are healthy do better cognitively, socially, emotionally, and, of course, physically. The focus of the book is to provide evidence based strategies to assist parents and educators to foster healthy weight gain in children and empower children to be active agents of change in their own health behavior. Leading a healthy life helps children live a higher quality of life. The book will provide a model that can be implemented at home and in school. The model will encompass nutrition education for children. Music will be a significant part in this model that will encourage children to sing and dance to the beat. Team and individual sports and games will be an integral part of the book, focusing on being active and avoiding sedentary behavior.
