Dear Teachers, Coaches and Counselors,
As a mom, thank you for the endless hours spent caring, supporting, mentoring and teaching young people. Your job is truly one of selflessness. As a dietitian with an expertise in eating disorders, I would like to pass on a few suggestions to promote normal eating and healthy body image. Even if Health is not your subject, random dialogue about weight and food can be potentially harmful to those young people who are struggling with eating disorders.
