Surely, all this contributes, not only to the increasing of our children obesity, influencing them to assume unhealthy eating habits, but also producing the eating disorders generating in our children a distorted and unhealthy image of the body beauty. Among many diseases caused by the eating disorders, the “Anorexia” today is in increasingly worried. What’s the “Anorexia”? It’s loss appetite; it’s the iron will to refuse the food.

It’s a basic importance also the pubertal change (sexual maturation) that often for the girl becomes a trauma.
