Pediatrician, Dr. Wendy Sue Swanson discusses preeclampsia with expert, Dr. David Reuter.

How we talk about eating and how we talk about dieting really changes how our kids eat and how they feel. Pediatrician, Dr. Wendy Sue Swanson, explains a recent study that found there are serious, long-term, harmful associations when parents encourage a teen to diet.
