ABSTRACT
The article presents a pediatrician's views on why obesity in children is difficult to treat and what she is doing about it. In her view parents don't follow through on her recommendations for their overweight children for several reasons including procrastination, the ease with which one can get discouraged by a long-term task such as losing weight, and the cost and availability of healthy foods.
