Published on

This is the companion guide to THE JOSHUA PROGRAM~ A Healthy Lifestyle Program for Children. Highly participative, the document includes homework assignments that empower children in meal planning, food selection, and in deciding which of their favorite bad foods, they are going to give up. The program is designed to permit the children to drive the healthy eating in the family, as parents seek to keep up with the gradual change! The program begins with a pledge of allegiance on a teleconference, with children calling-in from all parts of the country. Most participants are pre-teens.
