September is National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month!
About 1 in 5 (19%) children in the United States has obesity. Certain groups of children are more affected than others. National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month provides a chance for all of us to learn more about this serious health condition. While there is no simple solution, there are many ways communities can support children with their journey to good health.
Addressing obesity can start in the home, but also requires the support of providers and communities!
Parents and Caregivers Can Help Support Healthy Growth!
