National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month PART 1

September is National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month

We are dedicated to educating families on how to prevent childhood obesity which is affecting millions of children all over the world. It is a national crisis that needs to be addressed immediately through proper knowledge and concrete solutions. ⁠

Facts about Childhood Obesity:

  • Childhood obesity is a serious medical condition wherein the body mass index-for-age (BMI-for-age) of a child is greater than 95 percent.

  • Overweight children are prone to health issues that include diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol.⁠

  • Let us be good examples who can support the next generation. As the saying goes, change starts within.

There is no better time to start than now, so put those dancing shoes on, and let's start movin'!
