One in 5 children in the United States is obese. Childhood obesity puts kids at risk for health problems once only seen in adults, such as Type 2 Diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease. The good news is there are opportunities to change these trends.
In recognition of National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month, Cosumnes CSD will share ways to combat childhood obesity through a video series addressing everything from cardiovascular and bodyweight exercise, proper nutrition and tips on improving mental health. Follow @CosumnesParkRec on Facebook and Instagram to find activities you can try with the littlest people in your household.
