Promoting a Healthy Body Image For Girls and Boys

Marti appeared on KARE 11 News at 11 to talk with host Diana Pierce about how parents can promote a healthy body image for girls and boys. Experts say 80% of females are dissatisfied with their appearance, and about one million males have an eating disorder. Parents have a strong influence on children’s body images and that influence begins very early in a child’s life. Here are Marti’s five tips for parents:

1) Watch what you say

2) Engage your child in critical thinking about media images

3) Focus attention on healthy role models

4) Make healthy eating and exercise a lifestyle for your whole family

5) Nurture your child’s self-worth through competence and character development
