Today In The Upper Cumberland: Teens And Food

Professional counselor Melissa Spaulding discusses new trends in teens and food.

The Tennessee Commission on Children and Youth released its annual report this week detailing the trends in the state of the child in the state of Tennessee. One part of that – 1 in 3 high school girls said they had gone without eating for 24 hours or more, taken diet pills, powders, or liquids, or reported vomiting taking laxatives, or skipping meals to lose weight. We talk about that with Melissa Spaulding, a licensed professional counselor.
