Overview
Does your child struggle with choosing foods that are good for them to eat? Or does your child sit in front of a video game or TV screen instead of being physically active?

Description
Does your child lack the energy to perform up to their potential in school? Do they choose to sit in front of a video game instead of being physically active? As a parent, a grandparent, and special educator, I have witnessed firsthand how difficult it can be to motivate children to make healthier food choices and leave the video games for special days. Jerry Barry, Living Healthy, is a great tool that both professionals and parents can use to encourage their children to make healthier choices. Annette Langston, Nutritionist from Boston Massachusetts wrote: "I just received your book in the mail and I'm so excited! I actually work a few days a week with kids/teens with obesity and I think this book does a very good job of taking the focus off of weight and on the other benefits of a healthy lifestyle. I can definitely see myself using this book with my youngest patients to lighten the tone of a visit to the "doctor's office". I also really like that the lifestyle changes in the book are very general and don't endorse any particular diet or exercise plan. Mentioning sleep and play really helps round out the healthy lifestyle components." Kate Piccola, a Kindergarten teacher in Durham, North Carolina wrote, "As soon as we finished reading Jerry Barry, Healthy Living, all of my students said "THAT WAS GREAT!" I asked them what they liked the best and they loved that Jerry learned how to stay away from candy and sweets. They also really liked Billy and how he loved vegetables and had a healthy life style. As a teacher, I loved the positive message that the students learned from the story. Because the text rhymed, they were extra engaged and wanted to pay attention. What a cute message for them to learn!"
