Obesity – again

We are entering a new generation of obesity and now it’s not just adults who are obese – it is expected that the number of children who are obese will hit 20% by the year 2010 – that’s only FOUR years from now.

I heard or read somewhere that we are reaching that stage in obesity where this or the next generation of children will NOT have a longer life span than the parents…

Not only is obesity bad in and of itself, it makes all other medical problems worse….

I’ve been blogging about healthier children for a while now and hope the readers of this blog are among those who will not have obese children…It is something parents and grandparents have control over during the child’s early years…and good nutrition early on can never be a bad choice…

Please watch what your children and grandchildren eat and make sure they get exercise…. After all we want them to grow older better – just like we are : -)
