Childhood obesity is a continuing epidemic in our country with more than 23 million children being obese or overweight. With studies suggesting that the majority of obese and overweight children grow up into obese and overweight adults it’s important to focus on effective strategies for change. Childhood Obesity Awareness Month (COAM) provides us with a great opportunity to raise awareness of the problem as well as awareness of the strategies and techniques we all can use to help. As parents, health providers, teachers, and family members we can all assist our communities in becoming more aware and in taking action. How will you use Let’s Go!’s resources to support COAM?
