{More about Who’s the New Kid?}

Who’s the New Kid? (Tyndale, May 2015)

Who’s the New Kid? shows readers how Heidi helped her daughter lose weight without the aid of fad diets, medication, or surgery and how other parents can do the same with their kids.

At nine years old, Breanna Bond weighed a whopping 186 pounds. Just walking up the stairs to her room was a challenge. Her legs chafed to the point of bleeding from rubbing against each other, and her school days were filled with taunts of “Hey, Fatty!” Breanna’s mom, Heidi, was devastated and wondered, How can I get my daughter healthy again?

In just over a year, Heidi’s plan worked! Breanna dropped 40 percent of her body weight and was transformed from a morbidly obese child who spent her days in front of the TV eating chips and chocolate to a vibrant, healthy, energetic little girl.

Filled with helpful diagnostic tools, easy-to-make recipes, eye-opening nutritional information, fun exercise ideas, and practical tips and advice, Who’s the New Kid? will not only show parents how to help their kids lose weight naturally but also introduce them to simple, yet effective lifestyle changes that will benefit the entire family.

  • ‘WHO’S THE NEW KID?’ BLOG TOUR

    So why did a newlywed of less than three weeks and someone who is not a mom sign up for a blog tour of book written by a mom who helped her child fight obesity? It’s obvious that I am not reading this to try and help my child — but the subject interested me. I was the one in school who was overweight. I remember one time a teacher said we could write our nicknames on our papers we turned in. Mine was handed back with “Use your real name.” Evidently, it was acceptable to use “Bubba” but not “Short, Fat, and Ugly”. As an adult, I now see why my teacher said that, but at the time I thought, “That’s just my name.”

  • I found the first part of the book to be slow going. It seemed to cover the same ground over and over, and while I understand that it helped to get across their continual frustration and lack of progress, it dragged a bit too much. I did, however, appreciate Heidi’s honesty about her own responsibility in her daughter’s weight gain, and that her own selfishness played a huge part in delaying the weight loss process.I enjoyed the book a lot more once they started focusing on what finally began to work. I commend Heidi for fully committing to this weight loss journey with her daughter and walking (literally!) through it with her every step of the way. I think this book would be a huge encouragement to anyone dealing with childhood obesity.

  • ‘WHO’S THE NEW KID?’

    I appreciate how Heidi and Breanna are using their story to help other kids with the same problems they have experienced. Even though their journey was not an easy on, it was a productive one because it taught them the meaning of a healthy lifestyle. I did make me angry as Heidi talked about the way people viewed her efforts, especially talking about those who had talked about her daughter’s obesity, now criticizing her for refusing her candy and sweet treats.

  • ‘WHO’S THE NEW KID?’ BY HEIDI BOND AND JENNA GLATZER

    This was an interesting non fiction book about how one mother helped her young daughter beat obesity. The book was well written and flowed well. The subject matter made me hurt for Breanna. It is not easy being the so called fat kid. I have never dealt with it personally as a child but I gained a lot of weight in college. I changed my life by exercise and eating better. I was inspired that her Mom helped her and did not give up. I felt her frustration. I was a little upset it took so long for her to figure out where the problems were and what to do to fix it. I do not agree with the menu plan in the back though. I eat the Primal Life style. The story part I found okay but I would not use the meal plans even for children.

  • ‘WHO’S THE NEW KID?’

    Who’s The New Kid? by Heidi Bond tells the story of Breanna Bond, who at just nine years old weighed 186 pounds. Her mom faced the daunting challenge of making some lifestyle changes for her daughter that would ultimately affect her entire family. The book brings awareness about childhood obesity and it’s effects on our children.

    This book is a common sense approach to losing weight for not only children but adults. It includes a guideline for an exercise program, recipes and most importantly scripture to keep you motivated throughout your weightloss journey.

  • While this book isn’t aimed at single twenty somethings, I still got a lot out of it. It is a very inspiring journey of a young overweight girl and her family, and the steps they had to take to turn their lives around. Breanna had been overweight her entire life, she was always the chubbiest, least athletic kid on the playground. Her pediatrician assured her parents that she would “grow into it” but by the age of 9 she was treading dangerously close to the 200 pound mark and her parents knew they had to really do something about it. For years they had eaten as unhealthily as possible and that had clearly taken a toll on their daughter. Unsure of where to start, Heidi (mom), slowly started changing their diet and enforcing after school sports as well as four, one hour walks a week. It was a long journey, but the whole family committed and the weight began to come off Breanna. Nearly a year later and she had shed nearly 80 pounds. She was a whole new person, and much to her delight, she discovered just how fun sports were. Included in the book is a 40 day meal and exercise plan with plenty of recipes. It’s inspiring and has good advice for everyone. However it is mainly intended for parents with obese children.I received this book for free from Litfuse Publicity in return for my honest, unbiased opinion.

  • VERY INSIGHTFUL

    As a mother of two children, this book gave great insight to the struggles in our society to fight for our families to achieve and maintain a healthy outlook and weight. We live in a generation of technology with a plethora of television channels, gaming devices and phones along with what is termed convenience foods. As items have become available to give us more hours in our day it seems that we are leading a much more sedentary lifestyle with less physical activity and consuming convenience foods laden with unhealthy sugars, fats and empty calories. Heidi, who is the mother and author of this book shares her journey and commitment she made to help her daughter, Breanna, not only lose the excess weight she was carrying, but secure that she continues on a healthy path.

  • SUCH AN INSPIRATION

    Who’s The New Kid? is a wonderfully written book by Heidi Bond and Jenna Glatzer that is one of the most important books to read as a parent about childhood obesity and how to help your children make the right choices of food and helping them be active by making sure these things are part of your lifestyle. As a parent of 3 children , 2 daughters and 1 son we have been through the weight struggle in our family. We are right now going through this struggle with our 2 younger children. So much of the Bond Family’s life is a reflection of our lives. My husband struggled with weight as a child and was picked on for it. Now our son steals food in the middle of the night. We have tried everything: locking food up, hiding food in different places, and then eventually giving in to what he wants. As I read this book I really felt the turmoil and emotions that Heidi felt, and saw my family in this book. Heidi and Breanna’s stories have helped in many ways for me to see where we are doing this wrong and how to start doing this right. The honesty and transparency of this family definitely gives hope to all of us seeing our children struggle with weight that it can be done. Heidi found the courage and motivation to help Breanna and their whole family make the lifestyle changes needed to reclaim their lives is inspiring, empowering and real. This isn’t a fad diet, it is a lifestyle change. Something that transforms lives not just physically but emotionally. I have found such inspiration from their struggles and so much knowledge about how to help myself and my family. As our family continues to struggle with eating issues from anorexia to overeating I am hopeful we can make the changes in our lives to live healthier. I HIGHLY recommend this book to any families with children. You will not be disappointed. I cannot thank Heidi and Breanna enough for their courage to share their whole story. I give this book 5+ STARS.

  • {BOOK REVIEW} – ‘WHO’S THE NEW KID?’ BY HEIDI BOND WITH JENNA GLATZER

    I flew through this book. Childhood obesity is a real issue and is on the rise in the USA. Many parents are unaware of the true ingredients that are in many foods, even foods meant to be “diet food”, which end up being more harmful than helpful. Heidi does a wonderful job at telling her heartbreaking story of watching her daughter grow obese, while frantically searching for answers and fixes. She finally introduces wholesome, REAL foods and exercise which finally delivered results. Her daughter Breanna lost 86 lbs over an 8 month period. Included is a meal and exercise plan, which Heidi originally developed because she was unable to find a suitable one for children on her own. I highly recommend this book for anyone, especially anyone who is around children, obese or not.

  • BOOK REVIEW: ‘WHO’S THE NEW KID?’

    I found this book to be quite interesting and I commend Heidi Bond for taking matters into her own hands and taking on the challenge to better her daughter’s life. I found some of the tactics she used a bit extreme, but I’ve never been in her shoes. If I had a morbidly obese child, I may enact some of these same changes. I was excited to see that this book advocates diet and exercise for weight loss rather than pills and/or surgeries. The 40-day nutrition guide at the end of the book is a great resource, too.

  • INCREDIBLE JOURNEY

    What a beautiful story! Heidi, had never learned anything about nutrition and exercise so, they just ate whatever they wanted whenever they wanted. Her daughter, Breanna, was in 3rd grade and already hitting 180+lbs. Heidi tried everything she could think of and prayed, prayed, prayed. Through a lot of research, common sense and answered prayer, Breanna has lost all of her excess weight and even made the Junior Olympics in swimming!!

    This is an incredible journey that will keep you turning the pages. There are so many great side notes on nutrition, labels, exercising ideas and much more. It even includes a 40-Day Meal and Exercise Plan. Heidi’s brutal honesty is so refreshing.

  • LOVE THE 40-DAY MEAL AND EXERCISE PLAN!

    I’m so grateful that Heidi and Breanna shared their story of weight-loss because I feel that I’m constantly bombarded with fast weight-loss programs and crazy diets. Despite that I personally don’t like exercise; their story reminded me that I need to do it. I might not struggle with weight, but I know I am far from being healthy as I should be.

    Lastly, the meal and exercise plan at the back is amazing! I am eagerly looking forward to implementing in my home.

    I recommend this book to any mom’s who are looking for a story to boost the desire in wanting to eat healthy meals and exercise because this will be just the push you need.

  • ‘WHO’S THE NEW KID?’

    The writer (the mother) is very candid about her lack of knowledge in the beginning, her passion for saving her daughter, and how it changed their family. She mentions the ups and the downs. She wrote the book in hopes that it would help other moms out there who were as clueless about nutrition and exercise as she was and give them a place to start. The book wasn’t just a pile of facts though. It was an interesting read that inspired me to think about what I put into my mouth every day.

  • MY REVIEW OF HEIDI BOND’S ‘WHO’S THE NEW KID?’ PLUS FITBIT GIVEAWAY & FACEBOOK PARTY INFO!

    The vulnerability Heidi displays in sharing weak areas within her parenting, cluelessness regarding healthy eating, and the lightbulb moment that finally occurs when exercise is added to the plan are things that ANY parent can understand and relate. The isolation and bullying that Breanna experience are things all parents, grandparents, teachers, coaches and doctors should be reading. Empathy is an amazing tool for children and adults to put into practice-and Who’s the New Kid? opens up conversations regarding bullying, not sabotaging the child (student, grandparent, friend) as they travel a road of strict eating habits, and learning their own family’s need to adopt healthy eating habits and an active lifestyle.

    There are so many pieces to this as there is the emotional component, in addition to making an effort to live a physically active life and make healthy eating choices. Heidi includes a complete eating plan for 40 days and also recipes that the family loves and are also healthy. One tip that is a great one is to keep a food diary as this makes you really aware of what exactly you are eating, and also helps you to think twice. Thanks to Heidi and Breanna for sharing their story in order to help other children and families.

  • ‘WHO’S THE NEW KID?’ ~ A BOOK TO HELP YOUR OBESE CHILD

    As an adult who grew up being a little overweight I could relate to some of this book. It was tough when I was young and things have gotten much worse today.

    I was hoping for more specifics towards the beginning of the book and less story. The whole first 2/3 of the book seemed a little bit too long for me. The story could have been shortened. But once I got towards the back of the book I appreciated what I found there. The Forty-Day Meal and Exercise Plan is a great way to help you (child or adult) adjust your life to living in a more healthy way. The goals are simple and attainable. They are realistic. So many diets are based on do this one specific thing steps and this is based on life changes and habits!

    I was very disappointed that there were no real spiritual aspects to the book. Our health, diet and exercise is a part of who we are spiritually and it would have been nice to see this woven throughout the book.

    As far as helping to motivate adults to help there kids and having realistic eating plans and exercise plans, this was a good read!

    Even if your health is perfect and you’re not particularly interested in America’s struggle with obesity, if you love a good story, you’ll appreciate Who’s the New Kid? This was actually a book that I had a hard time putting down. You’ll experience the emotions the Bond family felt through the weight-loss process–from Heidi’s despair over Breanna’s consistent weight gain, to the cruelty of the bullying Breanna endured, to the resolve she finally developed to not give up, to the triumph of seeing this family see their dreams come true.

  • LITFUSE PUBLICITY: ‘WHO’S THE NEW KID?’ BY HEIDI BOND WITH JENNA GLATZER

    In a country where childhood obesity is climbing and climbing fast – we must begin to reverse that and we can learn from Breanna’s story and how to overcome obesity, both as a child and as adults. Buying the ‘right’ foods is only the tip of the iceberg, we must also get moving – of course even if one exercises a lot and still eats bad food the weight will cling on – there is a balance. There were some things I disagree with her on such as saying xylitol is bad, and while I do recognize that some people either need to build up in using it or can’t at all xylitol is a good choice in sweeteners and can also help prevent dental decay (I’m not a doctor however I’ve read many reports that are publicly available to support this). I really did enjoy this book, I thought it was quite inspirational.

  • HEIDI BOND’S ‘WHO’S THE NEW KID?’ (CHILD OBESITY) BOOK REVIEW AND FITBIT GIVEAWAY

    I read 3/4 of the book and just couldn’t finish it. I had a hard time pushing through reading her story. I felt like it took WAY too long sharing what DIDN’T work, when personally I felt like if the mom had listened to the nutritionist years prior (and at the beginning of the book) things might have been very different for them.

    It just didn’t make sense to me that if the mom did research for years about child obesity and diets etc. why she never found articles or made the correlation that exercising/movement and eating GOOD nutritious foods (like fruit, veggies, protein-no low fat and fad diets) helps to maintain or lose weight.

    Unfortunately, this book wasn’t at all what I expected so I personally can’t recommend it but it has good reviews from others online.

    Who’s the New Kid? by Heidi Bond just might be one of the most important books you’ll ever choose to read. Important, relevant, encouraging, honest, factual, full of hope, and even life changing are just a few ways I would describe this book. With complete honesty, Heidi takes readers on her personal journey, never minimizing her own part in allowing Breanna to reach a weight of 186 pounds by the age of nine. Heidi’s account is extremely well written, easy to follow, and a section with recipes, menu plans, exercise schedules is included at the end. Highly recommended.

    It seems like every day I’m bombarded with adult weight loss success stories and before/after photos, yet I’d never seen or read anything about a child successfully losing weight. In fact, that’s one of those taboo topics, where mothers are more likely to say, “Well, that child is just big-boned.” Or “It’s hereditary, and he can’t help it.” In the South, we may even add, “Bless her heart.” This book explores Breanna’s infancy and childhood, as her mother looks for clues as to how her daughter became overweight. I was so inspired reading her story that I’ve begun to make changes in my own life and home. I would definitely recommend this for anyone wanting to live a healthier lifestyle. The 40-day meal and exercise plan is a useful tool for transformation, and the recipes are great!

  • A GOOD AND UPLIFTING BOOK

    I wanted to read this book because my daughter is starting to go through some of the same issues and I thought it would be a good book for the both of us to read. I thought it would be nice to see another person’s thoughts and experiences on these issues. For me it is hard to see your child go through things like this and know there is not much you can do other then try and help and be supportive. I like how this was geared towards both adults and young adults. I feel as if both can read it and get a lot out of it. I also like that there were menu plans, recipes and an exercise program included. For me this book was well written and very easy to read. I thought it was informative. I also like how the author/mom used complete honesty when writing this and telling her daughter’s story. All in all a very informative and uplifting book to read.

  • ‘WHO’S THE NEW KID?’ {HEIDI BOND}

    Ever have one of those books that comes out of nowhere and has a life-changing impact on you? That is this book.

    I have been struggling with my own weight for some time now, and have done little to no exercise in years. I am also the mother of a daughter who could really benefit from better eating habits and exercise. This book pretty much summed up everything that I feel.

  • ‘WHO’S THE NEW KID?’ REVIEW

    This review is for the book Who’s the New Kid? by Heidi Bond with Jenna Glatzer. I will admit that before I read this book I thought it was some crazy health-nut mom using her child for some kind of health experiment. All the subtitle said was that the mother helped her child overcome childhood obesity. I really did not understand all that entailed. After reading the book I would say my judgment of the book was totally wrong. I read this book in one night. It was so good. I loved reading this family’s journey and I just felt for Bond. You can tell she had this burden on her as a mother. I highly recommend this book.

    Heidi’s entire family changed their way of eating and became more active, and the result was excellent. I highly recommend this book for anyone who has or has had someone in the family who has struggled with weight issues. Their story will encourage you!
