Childhood obesity is a major concern for Americans today. According to the CDC “childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and tripled in adolescents in the past 30 years.” Obesity is something that should be taken very seriously by parents and children alike. Childhood obesity affects your child in more ways than you may think; there are both immediate and long term effects of obesity on a child’s health.
