First lady Michelle Obama is urging the nations to battle childhood obesity in America.
According to her article, about one-third of American children, are overweight or obese. The country spends the billion of dollars every year treating obesity-related diseases, most of which are preventable. Weight-related health issues are also on the rise, and Obama hopes that if children can develop a healthy lifestyle when they’re young, they can avoid these problems both now and as adults.
She point-out many reasons childhood obesity is on the rise. Many families have difficulty purchasing the best foods for their children, the quality of school meals and easy availability of snacks and sugary drinks in many school vending machines were some of the first targets in the war on child obesity.
Mrs. Obama is pushing for a solution with her new "Let's Move" campaign, an anti-obesity program that will give parents the support they need, provide healthier foods in schools, help our kids to be more psychically active, and make healthy, affordable food available in every part of our country.
To conclude, Her goal is ending what she calls “the epidemic of childhood obesity” in a generation.
