Currently, tens of millions of children across America are suffering from child obesity and its secondary diseases, (diabetes, high blood pressure, depression and asthma) because they consume too much fat, sugar and sodium and DO NOT receive accurate nutrition education, structured exercise and/or physical activity.
This is important, because approximately 80% of overweight adolescents will become overweight/obese adults with a myriad of health problems that will shorten their lives and put their families into a financial hardship. This fact was made known at a conference entitled, "Weight of the Nation" when Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of Health and Human Services, echoed the findings of scientists that our children are predicted to be the first generation who will not live longer lives than their parents.
Plus, medical spending averages $1,429 a year more for an obese person than for someone of normal weight, according to Dr. David Kessler, former head of the Food and Drug Administration.
