The Obesity Strategy

#childhoodobesity #parents #teachertuesday #obesity #health
September is Childhood Obesity Awareness Month in the United States.  Here is a great blog by British author Kevin Peake The Obesity Strategy, in which he details some issues and suggestions for United Kingdom schools.  While schools have a significant effect on childhood obesity, let us not forget that obesity is not genetic but learned.  Children do not drive to the grocery store or restaurants and pay for food with their own hard earned cash.  Parents are 100% responsible for what they feed their children, and with smart phones, instant education on to what is healthy or not is available at your fingertips.  Before pointing the finger outside, take a look inside and see where does that finger need to be pointed.
