Childhood Obesity Levels No Longer Increasing — Yay!

The bad news is that childhood obesity rates have been on the rise and a large number of kids today are going to end up with heart disease and type two diabetes before they graduate high school. The good news is that the LA Times is reporting that childhood-obesity rates are actually leveling off, aka not increasing — the first time in nearly 10 years.

I wanted to share because it seems that all of our efforts to curb childhood obesity are paying off. So keep at it if you're a parent, a sibling, an aunt, a babysitter, a teacher, or anyone that influences a child's health positively. Feel like weighing in on the matter? Check out this poll on Citizen.

And bravo!
