Making Healthy Eating a Priority in Schools and Communities.
The state of obesity for youth in this country is alarming! According to data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), approximately 17% (or 12.5 million) of children and adolescents aged 2—19 years are obese. Since 1980, the obesity prevalence among children and adolescents has almost tripled. According to data from the Pediatric Nutrition Surveillance System,1 of 7 low-income, preschool-aged children is obese. Obese children are more likely to become obese adults.
And the very places where our children learn – our schools – could really use some help in setting up healthy lunches and eating programs.
We cannot tackle the rising cost of healthcare and obesity rates without consistent education that starts with our youth and our communities.
