'Be Well' Book Launches National Movement to Help Moms Instill Healthy Habits and End Childhood Obesity
Date:2/18/2010

id Ginny Ehrlich, Executive Director of the Alliance for a Healthier Generation. "Armed with the expert advice in Be Well, both from Dr. William Dietz of the CDC and the moms themselves, parents can help their whole family eat better, move more and live healthier lives."

The Dell family foundation and the Alliance for a Healthier Generation recently surveyed recipients of the book, including moms, school staffers, dieticians, PTA members and leaders, and healthcare professionals – many of whom are in a position to distribute additional books to moms in their network.  The survey results confirm the impact of the book and the usefulness of the information:

  • Readers believe that the suggestions outlined in the book are helpful, with 85 percent of participants stating the nutrition tips are useful, and 67 percent stating the tips about physical activity are helpful
  • Regarding using the book's practical advice, 78 percent of readers felt sure or very sure that people who read the book can practice at least one of the tips in the book
  • Survey participants reported that 87 percent of people they had passed the book onto reacted positively, with the other 13 percent responding that they had the book themselves but had not passed it on to others yet
  • And 97 percent said they were likely to pass Be Well onto someone else
