Don’t Become Another Statistic.

Childhood obesity is on the rise. Visit any shopping area, school or restaurant and it’s plain to see that our national statistic stands to be true. Yes, the statistic that states, one in three children are overweight or obese. What’s most alarming is children learn from what is modeled to them. The actions of parents, siblings, and media mirror the decisions our children make. As a society that lures more to plant and secure happiness and contentedness, this same notion is being applied to our eating demands. As a double whammy this same logic is being applied to our yearn for technology, which in most cases, leaves us immobile, with no ability to efficiently burn the excess calories consumed. It’s a cycle that continues to increase the fat percentage of our children and adults alike.
