September is National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month

National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month
About 1 of every 5 (17%) children in the United States has obesity, and certain groups of children are more affected than others. Childhood obesity puts America’s children at early risk for type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease—conditions usually associated with adulthood.
There is no single or simple solution to childhood obesity.  It is influenced by many different factors, including a lack of access to healthy, affordable food and drinks as well as limited opportunities for physical activity in the places where children live, learn, and play. Working together, states, communities, and parents can help make the healthy choice the easy choice for children and adolescents.
