Today over nine million children over the age of six in the United States are considered obese. They are at greater risk of developing heart disease, diabetes and having a lower life expectancy than their parents. These statistics are scary but true. Organizations like First Lady, Michelle Obama's Let's Move Campaign and this website are working hard to spread awareness with the hopes of reducing the number of over weight children in the US.
