Aug. 29, 2011 - PRLog -- While the upcoming release Maggie Goes on a Diet sends the wrong message to children with its story of a six year old who goes on a diet and wins popularity only as a thinner self, the recent book Don’t Call Me Cookie provides the right message on the importance of a healthy lifestyle.

Endorsed by University Hospitals, Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital of Cleveland, Ohio, Don’t Call Me Cookie will be one of the most important books your child ever reads.  

Author Vanessa Pasiadis’ inspiring story features Cookie Lemon, a smart, popular 12-year-old with a lot of passion for acting. A positive role model. But Cookie faces a challenge shared with many kids: she is overweight.

When Cookie takes a fall and goes to see her pediatrician, he not only treats her for her accident, but gets her started on a path to learning and living a healthy lifestyle. “Dr. Max” shares his “not-so-secret” secrets about eating right and keeping “actively active.”

What a pleasure it was to read such an honest portrait of a tween realizing how food affects her in every area of her life. Vanessa Pasiadis does a wonderful job of creating a hybrid of education and entertainment that schools and other media outlets will benefit greatly from. 'Cookie' will open the reader's eyes and inspire change in their own life. -- Elise Jaffe, Co-creator Fooditude Media, LLC, Chicago, Illinois.

Don’t Call Me Cookie is a valuable tool for health professionals working with chil¬dren who are overweight or obese. It is also excellent for families who want to discuss nutrition, exercise and weight with their children. It is sensitive to the is¬sues of self-image facing preteens, and addresses them in a gentle, constructive manner while at the same time focusing on health issues. - Leona Cuttler, M.D., the William T. Dahms Professor of Pediatrics and the Chief of Pediatric Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism, University Hospitals of Cleveland, Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital

Pasiadis concocted a light, breezy story that instructs while entertaining…and emphasizes concepts such as active lifestyle and portion control throughout the story. She also offers a sample diet for kids and ‘Food for Thought Questions to Ponder’ to spur discussions between children and parents. - Pittsburgh Tribune Review
