Win 1 Free Month to DrWeigh for tips on feeding children

Recently I had the pleasure of meeting Joanna Dolgoff, MD (aka: Dr. Weigh) at the Subway/NIH Pep rally in DC where I learned about the WE CAN! program to defeat childhood obesity.

Watch the Stop Light

Joanna has created a very cool online program that gives parents what they need to help their children eat healthy without being hungry.

  • Her easy "stop light" system rates thousands of foods with a red, yellow, or green light to easily determine which foods need to be limited and which foods are unlimited...yes, unlimited, so there's always something to snack on!
  • Recipes and sample menus help you plan ahead and make eating healthy much easier.
  • Weekly newsletter and nutrition lessons offer support and exercise tips to help keep your family's health on track.

Check out her success stories so you can see how kids really did learn to make better choices all on their own!

Be sure to visit Joanna's blog for lots of valuable information too:



  1. I could use the opposite assistance. I have a nine year old who is underweight. I know it is a rarer problem, but it does exist. Can the program be used to encourage her to eat healthy, but to eat?

  2. This is such an important topic- and becoming quite the epidemic in my neck of the woods. Going to check out the site now.

  3. It starts when they are so young. Kids need to develop good eating habits. It's so hard sometimes especially with busy parents or schedules that don't allow time for a healthy meal. I guess the FAQ that stood out to me is the one about Is it safe for kids to be on a diet.

  4. The one that stood out to me is How is Fitness incorporated. I think that is the most important thing for kids to stay healthy is to be active!

  5. It's a great idea, but too regimented for our family. We strive to make healthy choices most of the time, blending in a good dose of exercise. However, planning ahead just adds an additional layer of stress in our busy lives.

  6. Such a need for society today! Thanks for sharing!
