New Study Reveals Parents May Outlive Kids Because of Health Problems Triggered by Child Obesity


QUEENSLAND, Australia May, 2012 – According to the American Medical Association, the current generation may be the first to experience parents outliving their children.* The study reveals that childhood obesity is leading to medical conditions that previously only plagued adults in their middle years. Health problems such as hypertension, osteoarthritis, arthritis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, diabetes and stroke now afflict children around the world because of childhood obesity.

The report is alarming and has stirred many people, especially parents, into action. A growing number of parents are now educating themselves and their children on the importance of healthy eating to their kids’ health as they embrace the importance of superfoods in their kids’ diet. Healthy Food Guide Australia defines Superfoods as “natural foods that contain a high concentration of nutrients and have health benefits beyond those of ‘common’ foods due to rich phytochemical and antioxidant content.”**

Sharon Cooper is one Australian Mum who has chosen to fight against childhood obesity with a whole lot of creativity and humour. In her latest book – “Superfood Spike and the Fart of Junkfood Jimmy” – Sharon uses witty and engaging characters that children can relate to and elicits much laughter from parents and kids alike as she drives home her message about healthy eating choices.

“Superfood Spike and the Fart of Junkfood Jimmy” is the first book that enables parents to discuss unhealthy weight and junk food advertising head on in terms that children can understand. Using funny characters that come to life through every child’s imagination, the book provides lots of laughs for kids while giving parents the tools to raise awareness about junk food and superfoods in a fun and engaging way.

Sharon welcomes parents to visit for more information on how they can prevent their child from having a shorter life expectancy than they do.
