Publisher's Description

At nine years old, Breanna Bond weighed a whopping 186 pounds. Just walking up the stairs to her room was a challenge. Her legs chafed to the point of bleeding from rubbing against each other, and her school days were filled with taunts of “Hey, Fatty!” Breanna’s mom, Heidi, was devastated and wondered, How can I get my daughter healthy again?

Who’s the New Kid? shows readers how Heidi helped her daughter lose weight without the aid of fad diets, medication, or surgery and how other parents can do the same with their kids.

In just over a year, Heidi’s plan worked! Breanna dropped 40 percent of her body weight and was transformed from a morbidly obese child who spent her days in front of the TV eating chips and chocolate to a vibrant, healthy, energetic little girl.

Filled with helpful diagnostic tools, easy-to-make recipes, eye-opening nutritional information, fun exercise ideas, and practical tips and advice, Who’s the New Kid? will not only show parents how to help their kids lose weight naturally but also introduce them to simple, yet effective lifestyle changes that will benefit the entire family.

Editorial Reviews

When Bond’s daughter, Breanna, was nine years old, she weighed 186 pounds. Her pediatrician didn’t seem concerned, but Bond watched her daughter become increasingly inactive, withdrawn, and addicted to junk foods. Bond prayed for guidance and then decided to take on the challenge. The determined mom began by taking Breanna for nightly walks. As the pounds started coming off, Bond signed her daughter up for the swim team and looked for ways for the entire household to be more active. The secret to beating childhood obesity, Bond found, was making it a family battle. Junk food was tossed from the cupboards, and everyone began to eat healthier. Along with the story of their success, Bond includes basic menus, easy recipes, and activity tips. Although she frequently refers to her faith, Bond’s advice is so practical that every reader will find it useful. Childhood obesity is an urgent topic, and the success of Bond’s commonsense methods, which have been well documented and cele-brated on national news shows, make this straightfor-ward book a solid library purchase.

    Whos the New Kid? is an inspiring story!

    Breanna Bonds struggle with childhood obesity began at a very early age. By the time she was nine years old, she had already reached a weight of 186 pounds. In this encouraging book, Heidi Bond, Breannas mother, candidly shares the challenges and rewards of their emotional struggle and life-changing journey of transformation.

    While the book is primarily the Bonds story of overcoming Breannas obesity, helpful tips and advice, nutritional information, a forty day meal and exercise plan, and recipes are also included. Written with openness and honesty, Whos the New Kid? will make you stop and think and encourage you to make the necessary changes in your life to achieve better physical health.

    I received a complimentary copy of Whos the New Kid? through Litfuse Publicity. I appreciate the opportunity to read this book and share my honest opinion.

    What an inspiring story to say the least!

    It was heart-breaking in the beginning to read of Breanna's obesity and seeing it from a mom's perspective. I can't even began to imagine how Heidi must have felt when not getting any help for her daughter and then when she was changing up her daughter's diet to just face naysyaers as well.

    I'm so grateful that Heidi and Breanna shared their story of weight-loss because I feel that I'm constantly bombarded with fast weight-loss programs and crazy diets. Despite that I personally don't like exercise; their story reminded me that I need to do it. I might not struggle with weight, but I know I am far from being healthy as I should be.

    Lastly, the meal and exercise plan at the back is amazing! I am eagerly looking forward to implementing in my home.

    I recommend this book to any moms who are looking for a story to boost the desire in wanting to eat healthy meals and exercise because this will be just the push you need.

    There are so many pieces to this as there is the emotional component, in addition to making an effort to live a physically active life and make healthy eating choices. Heidi includes a complete eating plan for 40 days and also recipes that the family loves and are also healthy. One tip that is a great one is to keep a food diary as this makes you really aware of what exactly you are eating, and also helps you to think twice. Thanks to Heidi and Breanna for sharing their story in order to help other children and families.

    NOT a book just for parents with obese children! Great book for any parent.

    "Who's the New Kid" is tagged and promoted as a book that shows "how an ordinary mom helped her daughter overcome childhood obesity-and you can too!". I certainly don't disagree with that tagline-but I do feel it unintentionally limits the audience and doesn't properly describe the depth of this book. For the book shows not just the transformation of daughter Breanna, but also a change in mom Heidi. The vulnerability Heidi displays in sharing weak areas within her parenting, cluelessness regarding healthy eating, and the lightbulb moment that finally occurs when exercise is added to the plan are things that ANY parent can understand and relate to and learn from. The isolation and bullying that Breanna experience are things all parents, grandparents, teachers, coaches and doctors should be reading. Empathy is an amazing tool for children and adults to put into practice-and "Who's the New Kid" opens up conversations regarding bullying, not sabotaging the child (student, grandparent, friend) as they travel a road of strict eating habits, and learning their own family's need to adopt healthy eating habits and an active lifestyle. I really enjoyed the book, and I hope people who do not have an obese child can look beyond the tagline and read it anyway.

    This is an amazing story, and so inspiring. With child obesity on the rise, this is a very import and timely book.

    At nine years old, Breanna weighed 186 pounds. Her mom cooked good tasting meals without thinking about health. Her daughter was a good eater and her doctor had said Breanna would grow into her weight. But she hadn't. Her weight had grown right along with Breanna.

    The book is written from the mother's viewpoint. She did not have weight struggles and didn't know about eating healthy. There were chips in the pantry and ice cream in the freezer.

    Heidi began to realize that something needed to be done. She was seeing signs of depression in her daughter. She read about childhood obesity and knew the future was not promising for Breanna. She and her husband tried locking the cupboards and used other strategies to no avail.

    Then came the day that changed everything. Heidi had been invited by a neighbor to go for a walk. It changed her life and eventually the life of her family. Heidi developed a new routine for exercise and healthy eating habits. She had a zero tolerance policy.

    Life began to change but the going was not easy. It was not smooth sailing. She found that relying on the Lord was essential.

    Heidi notes that child obesity is different than adult obesity. Getting the child to make the right choices, to have that intrinsic motivation to choose healthy food, is a difficult path. But she learned the lesson of just starting where you are, even if you don't have all the answers or the way planned out. Heidi has added suggestions and tips at the end of each chapter that include valuable information and great resources.

    Breanna dropped 40 percent of her body weight, going from a morbidly obese child to a healthy and energetic girl. What an inspiration! I highly recommend this book for parents of children struggling with weight issues.

    There are several Appendixes, including a forty day exercise plan, a forty day food plan, recipes, a shopping list, food journal, and an inspiring forty day devotional from Scripture.

    I received a complimentary egalley of this book through Litfuse for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
