Too Young to Diet Still Going to Hospital for Eating Disorders – Video of the Week

A Government study from 1999-2006 had some scary results – children are going to the hospital under the age of 12 for eating disorders and the numbers are on the rise. 

Another study found children as young as 3 are worried about being fat.  The big problem here is that when taken to the doctor, these worried children are in the healthy/normal range.  Childhood obesity is absolutely becoming a problem, but this video explores healthy children thinking they are fat – a red flag for developing an eating disorder.
