Childhood obesity poses real and serious health risks to our kids. Today, more than 23 million children and adolescents in the United States -- nearly one in three young people -- are either obese or overweight, putting them at higher risk for serious, even life-threatening health problems.
For real change to happen, we need to change the root causes of childhood obesity. It's going to take a movement to change schools, to change communities, and to change national policies.
There's hope. PreventObesity.net is building a national network to power the movement to prevent childhood obesity. Whether it's joining a local parents' group to get healthier food choices available in nearby schools or supporting a large organization for a national day of action, you can play a part in this movement.
This is just the beginning. Join today and help us power the movement to prevent childhood obesity!
