Tuesday, 2 July 2019

Obesity among children is a fairly new problem in the United States. Rates of childhood obesity in the 1960s and 1970s were relatively low, with only 5 to 7 percent of kids qualifying as having obesity.

 

 

Today, the Centers for Disease Control and PreventionTrusted Source puts the rate of childhood obesity at 18.5 percent, with roughly 13.7 million children and adolescents being affected. That’s a huge leap over the course of just a few decades.
