From a campaigner, TV presenter and mum of girls, this practical and investigative book will empower parents to bring up a new generation of body confident children.
Molly Forbes is a writer, presenter, campaigner and a mum to two daughters. As well as co-presenting the podcast Body Cons, Molly regularly appears at events and in the media talking about body image, children and mental health. She has spoken on ITV's This Morning, BBC Breakfast, Sky Sunrise, Sky News, Radio 1 Newsbeat and various regional stations. In 2019 Molly appeared as one of the hosts on Channel 4's Naked Beach and later founded the #FreeFromDiets movement, calling for tighter restrictions in the way weight loss products and slimming services are advertised around children. She also runs workshops for teachers and youth leaders on the subject of body image and is currently setting up the The Body Happy Organisation CIC, a social enterprise dedicated to the creation of resources to help parents, teachers and carers to promote positive body image for children. Molly lives in Devon with her children and husband.
I am so impressed by Molly's continued hard work and commitment towards this important campaign. She is a woman on a mission and it's one every parent should be listening to.
