"The problem I see with the book is, I have not read it, it has not been released until October, is that we definitely don't want to encourage any child to go on a diet."
Rowe, a nurse and health educator, has launched a website for moms called Always Healthy Mom and it's aimed at teaching healthy lifestyles instead of demanding diets.
"Always Healthy mom where families and moms can come for support. I think get some tips and how to's on how to raise a healthy family and kind of follow my journey in trying to raises a healthy family," says Rowe.
Rowe is the mother of three and in her job as a health educator she was seeing too many moms like her make their own health the last thing on the to-do list. So she says she working to change that, "Going on a diet is not the answer, children should not go on diets it's not recommended for them."
Here are three steps this Always Healthy Mom recommends:
Step 1. Make sure you eat dinner as a family.
Step 2. Plan ahead and make a grocery list.
Step 3. Get your family moving.
Rowe says, "One in three children today from ages 2 to 19 are actually considered overweight or obese." That's why she's working hard to spread her Always Healthy Mom message online, on the radio and in the newspaper.
