“Every family has its secrets. It’s just that Henrietta Sharp’ s family is in the business of saving the world. And now she is too. But when your ten-year-old body packs on some extra pounds, not even an uncommonly large vocabulary or the ability to travel between dimensional slices of the universe can make your hips look smaller.
While ten-year-old Henri grapples with her own weight, she is unaware that a sinister plot to enslave humanity is in the works or that the frenzied consumption of dangerously delicious food is part of the plan. But there is more to the world and to Henri than meets the eye.”
Yuck, just yuck. Anyone out there feel compelled to write in, complain, comment on this website? Unfortunately, this is not the first “do-bad, do-gooder” that I’ve seen in terms of websites trying to be hip and “fun” and teach kids about “healthy” foods and weight. Blech. Harmful on so many levels.
This will be a new series. Folks, send in your “do-bad, do-gooder” sites. Maybe if enough of us barrage them with complaints, fight them with research about true health and weight, and disordered eating, things might change… BTW, a ten year-old body “packing on the pounds” is most likely the beginning of puberty, not a sinister plot. Yuck.
I’m in the middle of trying to put our house on the market. Anyone want to take on a one or two paragraph response why this is so harmful and counterproductive, and folks can cut and paste and amend?
