Childhood Obesity: A Close Up Look

Which that said, my estimate is that 35% of these young women are overweight or obese. This is consistent with the national trend.

One of the players had a very obvious “spare tire” that was visually obvious with every swing. The gravity if this adipose tissue flung forward with the twist of her swing. With each peak, I thought to myself, “this poor kid will be diabetic by age 30 if nothing is done.”

Surrounded by fast-food advertisements, junk snacks, and sugar charged drinks, this teenage generation is doomed. It has been stated repeatedly this this generation-our children-will not live as long as their parents.

So what to do? An action plan? Start with the following:
A. Look at your kids weight: take action if your child is overweight
B. Thin out you food closets of processes foods.
C. Learn to cook and feed your family real good
D. Teach your kids
