Why It Matters
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, obesity has more than doubled in children and quadrupled in adolescents in the past 30 years.
In 2012, more than one third of children and adolescents were overweight or obese. 70% of obese youth had at least one risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Obese adolescents are more prone to pre-diabetes. You can contribute financially, take photos or work with our team to help launch Real Kids, Read Food events and e-books to communities nationwide.
