“Mommy, can you buy me a new Barbie Doll for my birthday?! I want to look just like her when I grow up!”

“Sure honey, but keep in mind you’re body is never going to look like hers’ and you may have eating and body image issues when you get into your teen years.”

The stats speak for themselves. 4 out of 5 10-year-olds say they’re afraid of being fat. 42% of girls in the 1st through the 3rd grade wish they were thinner. And, half of girls aged 9 and 10, claim they feel better about themselves when they’re dieting. This photo shows actual models posing as Barbie at The Dream Closet Cocktail Party in NYC. As you can tell, most of them haven’t had a decent meal in months.
