Children and obesity

“Approximately 30.3% of children (ages 6 to 11) are overweight and 15.3% are obese. For adolescents (ages 12 to 19), 30.4% are overweight and 15.5% are obese.”

- American Obesity Association

I heard some believe children learn habits from their parents. Good stuff and bad. If mom and dad are kind and thoughtful, it stands to reason, the kids are going to be kind and thoughtful. However, if mom and dad watch the tee vee as soon as they get home from work and eat foods that are not the healthiest in the world, guess what Jack and Jill will do?

Good habits start with the parents. And the kids will follow...
