Let’s Fight Childhood Obesity

One in 3 children in the United States is overweight or obese. Childhood obesity puts kids at risk for health diseases that were once seen only in adults, like type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease. The good news is that childhood obesity rates are decreasing in some states. And, with your help we can support efforts to decrease these rates everywhere by making the effort to get fit!

Here’s a few simple changes that we can all make:

  • Be more active:  Get at least 60 minutes of exercise everyday. Whether it’s walking, aerobics or dancing every step counts!
  • Eat fresh foods:  Buy fresh fruits, vegetables and whole-grain foods. Make more meals at home. And, don’t forget to drink water!
