Did you know that 1 of 3 kids are obese or overweight before their 5th birthday?
September is Child Obesity Awareness Month - the perfect time to fight a worldly issue effecting our children. An awareness month initiated by First Lady, Michelle Obama, to help to prevent child obesity and increase a healthier lifestyle.
This initiative has sparked an array of pushes to change the way our kids eat.
If you've purchased a Happy Meal from McDonald's lately - you might have notice fries are in a smaller packaging than they were before.
This is just one small example of the change that is being made to give our children healthier lives'.
At the Y, we also care about our kids and want you to take part in the Y's many services to prevent child obesity in your child.
Help us take a stand and fight Child Obesity - the Y way!
