This is an article focusing on combating childhood obesity nation wide. The sources this article uses are the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, and the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion. It was posted and last updated on September 23, 2013. The points this article discusses are mainly statistics of children’s health, and statistics of slight declines of childhood obesity recently. They also have resources o what needs to be done as well as what parents can do to help reverse this epidemic. This is important to me because health in general should be taken seriously, but health in children is even more vital. Our children are our future, and their health is vital in so many different aspects. My recommendation for all is to take action! To take small steps necessary to begin to reverse this very big issue, and combat obesity for our children and their future lives!
