Posted on Jul 31, 2009 by Maggie LaBarbera

Childhood obesity (and it related issues) is costing American taxpayers over $100 BILLION dollars A YEAR.

But of course, it is more than the money. It's about our children being happy and healthy. It's about giving them a chance to grow up without disease like diabetes and heart disease.

  • It starts with helping kids learn about the importance of healthy eating.
  • It also starts with patience and a positive approach as a family.
  • It starts with changing your family's eating patterns, one goal at a time.

These statistics are very startling, and rising all the time. It is the responsibility of parents and caregivers to teach children healthy-living lifestyles that include proper nutrition and exercise. If these important parts of life are practiced and made part of any childhood, they are most likely to be carried out into adulthood.
