The story culminates with Patty overcoming these challenges and improving her health condition by better understanding the importance of good nutrition and exercise, and through an increased awareness of the overwhelming number of social pressures, corporate persuasions, media-perpetuated temptations, and other cultural influences that adversely affect her ability to make healthy choices. The story not only portrays how Americas children have been culturally programmed into obesity, but also empowers its young readers to recognize the constant stream of negative influences encountered daily, to make decisive changes in their lifestyles and, in doing so, to get on track toward a lifetime of health and wellness.
