Helping out an obese teen

Do any of you have a teenager that you cannot seem to get to eat healthy and is prone to obesity if they don't start eating healthy? I wanted to share a little piece of a much bigger resource that Shannon Wills posted on her site. She did an article on "100 Tools and Resources to help your obese teen". I pulled number 35-51 to give you a little glimpse of the article. She also has "best shows for obese teens, best books, best recipes," and on and on. If you are interested in reading more, click here.
