I don’t really give a hoot as to what your politics are but Michelle Obama‘s plan to end the childhood obesity epidemic is something that every American should get behind. As a nation it is time that we set our adult problems aside and make our children’s issues a priority. America cannot afford the continued escalating healthcare costs. Imagine our armed forces with sick overweight soldiers defending our country. At my Seattle weight loss and Bainbridge Island weight loss offices of Slender For Life™ I have seen kids lose weight with self-hypnosis. Children respond naturally to hypnosis for weight loss.
Michelle Obama’s Plan to End Childhood Obesity Epidemic
According to WebMD on May 11, 2010, the goal is to Cut Child Obesity From 20% to 5% by 2030. Spearheaded by Michelle Obama, a new presidential initiative would reverse the child obesity epidemic.
To accomplish this, the plan makes 70 recommendations for early childhood, for parents and caregivers, for school meals and nutrition education, for access to healthy food, and for increasing physical activity.
“For the first time, the nation will have goals, benchmarks, and measurable outcomes that will help us tackle the childhood obesity epidemic one child, one family, and one community at a time,” Obama says in a news release.
U.S. kids haven’t always been obese. Only one in 20 children ages 2 to 19 was obese in the 1970s. But around 1980 child obesity began to rocket to today’s stratospheric level: Nearly one in three kids is overweight or obese, and nearly one in five is frankly obese.
Everyone knows obese kids face worse health than their normal-weight peers. What this means is that higher rates of diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and lung disease may lower children’s life expectancy below that of their parents.
Other effects are becoming apparent. The U.S. armed forces now warn that one in four Americans aged 17 to 24 is too heavy for military service.
