Get Moving, Snoozing, and Drinking to Combat Childhood Obesity

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the percentage of children with obesity has more than tripled since 1970, meaning that one in five school-aged children is obese. Children who are obese have a greater risk of developing other chronic illnesses like type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and asthma, all of which can continue into their adult years. If your child is in danger of becoming one of these statistics, adding even a small amount of physical activity to your daily routine can put your child on the road to living a healthier lifestyle.
