Weight Watchers recently announced a new promotion targeting teens. In the Summer of 2018 Weight Watchers will be offering free memberships for children ages 13-17. Weight Watchers is a diet program that is based on a points system and is basically a spin on calorie counting. Diets in general aren't healthy, but they're especially bad for children. I find this promotion to be incredibly troubling considering all of the negative impacts that dieting can have, including the development of eating disorders.
If you'd like to share your thoughts about this online and let Weight Watchers know that this new promotion for teenagers is NOT ok, use the hashtag #WakeUpWeightWatchers in your posts.
