FitBit Giveaway & Review | Who’s the New Kid? by Heidi Bond


How an ordinary mom helped her daughter overcome childhood obesity- and you can too!
Heidi Bond w/ Jenna Glatzer
Non-Fiction, Memoir/Weightloss
Hardcover, 320 Pages
Published: May 2015 Tyndale

Who’s the New Kid? shows readers how Heidi helped her daughter lose weight without the aid of fad diets, medication, or surgery and how other parents can do the same with their kids.

At nine years old, Breanna Bond weighed a whopping 186 pounds. Just walking up the stairs to her room was a challenge. Her legs chafed to the point of bleeding from rubbing against each other, and her school days were filled with taunts of “Hey, Fatty!” Breanna’s mom, Heidi, was devastated and wondered, How can I get my daughter healthy again?

In just over a year, Heidi’s plan worked! Breanna dropped 40 percent of her body weight and was transformed from a morbidly obese child who spent her days in front of the TV eating chips and chocolate to a vibrant, healthy, energetic little girl.

Filled with helpful diagnostic tools, easy-to-make recipes, eye-opening nutritional information, fun exercise ideas, and practical tips and advice, Who’s the New Kid? will not only show parents how to help their kids lose weight naturally but also introduce them to simple, yet effective lifestyle changes that will benefit the entire family

My Review

Very eye opening memoir about one family and their journey of victory over childhood obesity.
I read this book in one sitting. Having struggled with being overweight as a child myself, I could relate to and empathize.
Being a mom now to a normal weight toddler, this book reinforced all of the things I want for my own son and gave me some great information in putting my desires for him to have a healthy childhood to practice. Im glad this family decided to share their story. They share the ups and downs and ins and outs. It was not an easy journey, but very inspiring and encouraging for families struggling with weight issues.
Highly recommend!
