The Deadly Problem

During the past four decades, obesity rates have soared among all age groups, increasing more than four times among children ages 6 to 11. Today, nearly a third of children and adolescents are overweight or obese. That's more than 23 million obese kids!! If we don't act to reverse this alarming trend, we're in danger of raising the first generation of American children who will live sicker and die younger than the generation before them. Preventing obesity during childhood is critical, because habits that last into adulthood frequently are formed during youth. Research shows that obese adolescents have up to an 80 percent chance of becoming overweight or obese adults. Childhood obesity is on the rise nationwide. Virginia also follows this deadly path with a 31 percent childhood obesity rate, ranking 23rd in the nation of overweight youths.
