Dr. Veronica Note:
All those in healthcare have been shouting from the rooftops the consequences of obesity. Yet we have not come up with effective strategies to manage it across our population. Studies have shown that many of us underestimate our size. I think this is especially so in this country when there are so many larger people. Step into Europe and a relatively lean American looks HUGE.
Wellness Education must start at birth for both mother and child and wellness needs to become the path of least resistance meaning its got to be easy, cheap and fun.
So how do we accomplish easy, cheap and fun and decrease the size of our kids and boost their brain power?
