More About the Author

Hi, I am Sarah and thank you for looking at my book. I am not a doctor. The books I write are based on what worked for me and my family. I have no way to show you the improvement in grades achieved by my son but at the end of year 3 he was bottom of his class. 12 months later, he is in the top group of his class with his teachers saying he is intelligent and highly creative. How did we "change" him from a troublesome "special needs" child into one that is excelling at school and much happier. This is the story I outline in "Is it ADHD or is it just me?" These books are not designed to be fact based on the merits or otherwise of medications - I will leave that to the medics :-).

The ADHD book is the true story of my efforts to get a proper diagnosis for my son who was misdiagnosed as being autistic and having ADHD and I am sure other parents are going/have gone through the same process. Do I suggest ADHD doesn't exist? Of course not. It is an illness suffered by many but does everyone who has been diagnosed as having ADHD really have it? I don't believe so. I think society is far too quick to throw labels at people and in my opinion, natural options should be explored before children are put on very strong meds with some horrible side effects.

I am a mom to three children, two boys and a little girl. Having had one child diagnosed with ADHD or Autism (depending on the doctor I saw!) and being told the other two were "high risk", I became determined to help my kids any way I could. I was horrified to see that the so called healthy diet I was providing for them wasn't that healthy after all.

There is a reason why this generation of children are becoming obese and suffering more from ADHD, Autism, Diabetes and other conditions. It is simply not good enough to say we have to accept that this is just the way of the world we live in. It doesn't have to be :-)

I made some changes, quite small ones really that would be easy for any mom to do, yet the results I achieved were incredible.

My children are happier, healthier and as a family we are doing so much better. I hope by writing about my experiences I can help other families to avoid at least some of the problems we went through. If I can help one mother (or father) see that they may have other choices apart from putting their child on stimulant drugs I will be so happy :-).

It's a pleasure to read such a positive book on such a serious subject.

There are many views on diet as there are types of food but I find myself agreeing with a very large part of what the author says. What really tips it into five stars is not only Sarah Curran's observation that people must stop laying blame for their child's overweight problems on other people and organisations (bravo!), but the fact she then gives practical ways parents can use to get their children healthy.

Don't get me wrong, I do believe the government peddles plenty of misinformation, but why wait for them to get it right when we can do things for ourselves? This book shows parents and grandparents (and teachers) ways to regain control, and healthy messages to pass onto our children.

I think it would be interesting for Sarah Curran to do a follow up book or two showing this information, but aimed at children themselves.

This book by Sarah Curran is exceptional in a number of ways. It is a detailed, easily read book that confronts the problem of childhood obesity in a no nonsense, conversational manner. Full of fascinating facts about our eating habits, and those of our kids, it gives reasons to eat healthy (as if we needed them), hints on what to eat and how much (Supersize it, ma'am? No. Thank you.),what amounts of what foods should be eaten and why and some very interesting tidbits that I didn't know - and I know lots of things. :-)

Do you know which VIP organ of your body is composed of 60% fat? Hint: It is not your bottom!
Do you know of the different kinds of fats? Which are good for you and which are not?
Do you know which food contains MASSIVE amounts of antioxidants and also tastes so yummy it is a delight to eat? I had vaguely heard of them but this book filled in the gaps and made me go and purchase some today! LOL! This one hint alone is worth the price of the book.
Did you know that there are varying degrees of "organic"? Sarah Curran does and she explains just what you are getting with each degree.
Do you know what the food labels mean? Believe me, the fine print revealed in this book will shock you. Sometimes the word "healthy" when used in relation to certain foods should have the disclaimer "Only if you are an Olympic athlete."!

Supersized to Superhealthy is a fantastic book full of fascinating, useful and important information that every parent should have. Sarah Curran has really done her homework here and the book is inspiring and informative.

Seriously, the best I have read on this subject. If you have a child, buy it now!

It is really sad to see the number of overweight children. And the number is on the rise. Aside from the health issues many overweight kids may experience at an early age or later as adults due to weight issues, there is also the mental anquish of obesity. As the author points out, her child was only four when he was teased by his playmates.

This is an excellent read to draw attention to this growing problem and provide actionable steps to take to help prevent and/or reverse it.

I'll start this review off by saying I'm obese and a parent. I'm worried that my lack of exercise and poor eating habits will have a negative effect on my childs health and well-being.

Having read this book, I now have an arsenal of tips and tricks to use to help prevent this...and who knows, maybe I'll shift a few pounds too!

Great book, highly recommended.

This is a much-needed guide for parents that are concerned about their children's health. I knew that childhood obesity has become a serious problem in modern society, but I had no idea it was this extensive. A full 17% of kids aged 2 to 19 are considered obese? 30% of American children are considered obese? That's absolutely stunning. There is no disputing that obesity also triggers other incredibly serious side effects, the extent to which we haven't even begun to figure out.

I love the way Sarah speaks from the heart. It's one thing to see a physician's report, or researchers white paper on the subject of children's obesity, but to get to the heart of the matter there is nothing in the world like a mother sharing her experiences. This book is very well-written and is enjoyable to read. It's a well-rounded, holistic approach that can be easily implemented by anyone.

If you are in any way concerned about your child's weight then this book is a must read for you. Buy it now! I promise you will not regret it. Even if you don't believe you have an issue with your child's weight the recipes and information contained in this book are an outstanding resource for promoting children's health. I strongly recommend that educators and health care workers read this information and put it to work. It really is that good.

What I really love the most about this book is the fact that Sarah not only lays out exactly what to do to tackle the problem of children's obesity, but comes up with methods that are actually enjoyable while doing it. For anyone that's ever been on a diet or weight loss regimen, we all know that they really are not fun at all. I look forward to reading Sarah's next book and I hope we don't have to wait for it for too long.
