Re: prevention of obesity

Have you run search on "child obesity"

There are an increasing number of websites devoted to the issues around child obesity - so it will be well worth checking.

Does this imply that your school has never taught you what things lead to obesity?

Re: prevention of obesity

I just finished a nine-part article series on this topic back at my site. You can find the index to the article series here at http://expatriateskitchen.blogspot.com/ … plete.html

Most information is from the Institute of Medicine's report on childhood obesity and food marketing, plus there are helpful links and resources at the end of the series. Let me know if you find this useful. It is very in depth and covers all the sources of influence on obesity in our kids.
