TIME: Parents play important role in children's weight loss efforts

Release Date: March 1, 2010

An article in TIME magazine about childhood obesity, which has tripled among U.S. children in the past 30 years, quotes Leonard Epstein, professor of pediatrics and social and preventive medicine, about the role parents play in their children's weight loss efforts. He said, "you can't have a successful program if the parent is telling the kid not to eat chips while he's sitting there eating ice cream."
