Approximately one in three children under the age of 15 is overweight or obese in England, according to research published in the British Medical Journal. To help teach children how to eat right and take care of themselves, author Andrew Kelly presents his new book, “Jodie Green” (published by AuthorHouse UK).

Jodie Green comes in last in almost every race she enters, and her peers never fail to poke fun at her. When a dietician comes to school, she teaches Jodie’s class about healthy eating and the problems with foods high in salts and sugars. Jodie realizes that her problem might be that she is overweight.

With information from the dietician in hand, Jodie goes home to her mother and discusses her weight worries. They decide to see a doctor and get Jodie on the path to living a healthy lifestyle. Readers join Jodie as she begins to lose weight, gain her self-confidence and learn how to treat her body well.

An excerpt from “Jodie Green”:

“All the other kids were much better at sport than she was. They took a really long running approach and then jumped into the sand for the long jump. Some of her classmates could jump really far, but when Jodie tried, she didn’t get very far. Some of the other children would laugh at her. ‘You’re so unfit,’ they said.”
