six-year old girls are aware of foods that are bad for the figure!
Internet parental control software CyberSentinel carried out the survey of 1,500 girls between the ages of 6 and 15. One third of the 11-year-olds said they were 'too fat' and one in three also said they hated their tummy. Despite their bones still growing, 19 per cent had hang-ups about their bodies with chest (19 per cent) and legs (16 per cent) the main concerns. Fourteen per cent claimed they were unhappy with their arms and 13 per cent didn't like the shape of their posterior.
Overall 33 per cent of young girls have looked on the internet to find out more about dieting, slimming products and calorie control. And young girls will go to extreme lengths to emulate celebrities and models in the media. Whether they are naturally slim or ridiculously skinny fashion model who is either anorexic or bulimic:
Such images have a bad impact on teen and pre-teen girls who are already traumatized over the natural changes occurring in their bodies. Even girls who are celebrities suffer from a negative body image, like the model Ali Michael and the actress and singer Scarlett Pomers. While going through the normal growth pangs and entering puberty, like many other girls, Scarlett saw changes in her body during Christmas 2004. "I had gained a few pounds from all the cakes and cookies everyone had baked during the holidays, and for some reason, it bothered me."
Scarlett used pro-anorexia websites to help her drastically cut weight, until she got so sick that her parents had to send her to rehab. Today she is fully recovered and an ambassador for National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA).
