In my search to help my 13 year old daughter with her weight loss, I have come to find out that the food pyrmid you get at the doctor's office doesn't help. I have taken her to a dietician just to be told to eat only enough that will fit in the palm of your hand. My daughter is still hungry when the meal is done. What is really needed is a complete week's menu of kid friendly healthy food choices. The realization is that it is a job making sense out of trying to plan weight loss meal choices that the children will eat and feel satisfied when done. There is no Jenny Craig program for children. So the parents and children get frustrated and give up. They can not eat salid for lunch and supper everyday. Does anyone know of a resource for kid-friendly healthy menus that are geared for weight loss?View Thread
