17% of American kids are obese. That puts them at risk for health problems such as heart disease, asthma, and diabetes. It also comes at an emotional cost: obese kids get teased more than others and are often excluded from group activities. We'll discuss the latest research on nutrition and obesity in children and hear about the best ways to talk to kids about their weight, and help them lose it.

Guests:

Andrea Garberg, Chief Nutritionist for the UCSF Eating Disorders Program

Louise Greenspan, pediatric endocrinologist, Kaiser Permanente San Francisco Medical Center

Joanna Strober, founder, Kurbo Health
