The numbers are alarming and have tripled since the 80's. Our children are at risk and we as health educators must do what we can to end childhood obesity. Some children are only getting physical education in schools, two to three times a week for 30 minutes, which we all know is no where near enough. Recess is not vigours exercise, most of the time so our children need more. Find out statistics at http://www.letsmoveitmommas.blogspot.com, I'd love to hear your thoughts.
