Editorial: Schools, communities must join our fight against obesity

by Jason H. on Friday, December 14, 2012

Hello You're the Cure advocates!  You may be interested in reading this editoiral about childhood obesity.  It was written by Katherine Knoll who is the chairwoman of the Healthy Kids, Healthy Michigan coalition, a group that the American Heart Association is involved in.

 

"In addition to the commitment that needs to be made at home like eating more nutritious food and becoming more physically active, families need to be able to rely on their state and local communities to create environments where healthy choices become easier choices.

As an example, parents need to be confident that their children are receiving fresh, healthy meals and snacks at school."
