Greenwich High School tackles issue of eating disorders
Education officials at Greenwich High School are taking on the issue of eating disorders by hosting several meetings that highlight the myths about food.
The pressure to be thin among female and male teens is leading to an increase in anorexia and bulimia. To help students, the officials started an after-school program called Food for Thought. And most recently they are using special presentations as a way to tell kids that food is not the enemy. Kathy Steiner, of Greenwich High School, says adults need to advocate that beauty comes from within and not just in a size two.
In addition to tackling eating disorders, the school is also helping kids with the problem of obesity.
