Diet Crazy Mums

About the Show

About the Show

Many women worry about their own weight and, as an increasingly significant proportion of kids are categorised as overweight or obese, it’s natural that some mothers may be concerned about their daughters' weight as well. But when the mums in question face their own struggles with diet, eating habits and exercise, how do their attitudes affect the lives of their daughters? Diet Crazy Mums follows families for whom mothers’ feelings towards food and physical activity are having a disturbing impact on their daughters’ own attitudes. Do mums who make a big deal of eating “diet” foods unconsciously encourage their girls to do the same? Can a mother's constant exercising lead to her offspring having an unhealthy interest in gym machines? And, if mums constantly nag their daughters to lose weight – even if they claim to have their girl's best interests at heart – could they be unwittingly sowing the seeds of eating disorders?
