9781433813009: Healthy Eating in Schools (School Psychology)

School-based interventions that target obesity in children often have little positive effect and may inadvertently contribute to unhealthy behaviors in the attempt to lose weight. This book provides a conceptual model for understanding both obesity and eating disordered behaviors. Specifically, it advocates for body acceptance and intuitive eating a flexible, healthy eating behavior involving awareness of the body s hunger and satiety cues. Within this context, the chapters review evidence-based school interventions in nutrition, self-regulation, exercise, body acceptance, media literacy, and mindfulness. Guidance is also provided for identifying, referring, and supporting students with emerging eating disorders.

Review:

This helpful book provides ideas on healthy eating for school personnel to implement in their schools. It introduces the "Healthy Student Approach," which is a holistic way of addressing obesity. Given the poor eating habits of many students, the book helps school personnel guide these young people in making better choices. --Doody's Review Service

School personnel at every level would be wise to read this book in order to create a truly informed and evidence-based program of healthy eating and food awareness. Similarly, the many recommendations found in the book are relevant at elementary, middle and secondary school grades. --New England Psychologist

Book Description American Psychological Association, United States, 2013. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Concern over increased childhood obesity has spurred various school-based interventions. However, these interventions often have little positive effect and may inadvertently contribute to unhealthy behaviours during weight loss attempts. Indeed, a general emphasis on appearance and weight (rather than health) can promote eating disordered behaviours. This book provides a conceptual model for understanding both obesity and eating disordered behaviours. Specifically, it advocates for body acceptance and intuitive eating - a flexible, healthy eating behaviour involving awareness of the body s hunger and satiety cues. Within this context, the chapters review evidence-based school interventions in nutrition, self-regulation, exercise, body acceptance, media literacy, and mindfulness. Guidance is also provided for identifying, referring, and supporting students with emerging eating disorders. Without empirically supported guidance, schools run the risk of implementing ineffective or harmful programming in an effort to do good. Thus, this book is a much needed resource for teachers, administrators, counsellors, nurses, and other school personnel. Bookseller Inventory # AAN9781433813009
