How Our Kids Can Beat Obesity

How Our Kids Can Beat Obesity | Health, Fitness | Scoop.it

"Sitting, usually associated with TV viewing and excessive video game playing, is a problem and continues to be a big player in childhood obesity/overweight issues," said Dobrosielski.

That’s one of the reasons our society is struggling with obesity.

Cris Dobrosielski's insight:
