Today’s Parents – How To Get Your Family Eating Healthier And Be More Active

Did you know, according to the U.S National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey of 2009-2010:
• 35.7% of adults age 20 and over are obese; and
• 16.9% of children and adolescents are obese?
Some experts even suggest that this generation of young people may be the first generation to die before their parents because of obesity-related disease.
