Childhood Obesity is a major epedemic in the United States. Over 30% of children are considered overweight and childhood obesity had doubled in the last 25 years.

Factors such as Television, video games, and the reduction in physical education programs in school contribute to this problem.

A recent study released in the Journal of the American Medical Association states that obesity has reduced the average life-span of Americans by 4-9months.

Through my platform, I hope to educate children to maintain a healthier lifestyle.

It's simple.....let's move!!!

Making movement and healthy food choices a part of daily life willl contribute to a better lifestyle.
