The Epidemic Obesity in Idaho Causes The Solution

Learn The Facts

Over the years, obesity has grown to sincerely hurt generations and now is snowballing to harm future generations as well unless we take the initiative that Let’s Move! and Let’s Move! in North Idaho proposes to make things a little better for years to come.

The Let’s Move! website reports:

“In total, we are now eating 31 percent more calories than we were forty years ago–including 56 percent more fats and oils and 14 percent more sugars and sweeteners. The average American now eats fifteen more pounds of sugar a year than in 1970.

Eight to 18-year old adolescents spend an average of 7.5 hours a day using entertainment media, including, TV, computers, video games, cell phones and movies, and only one-third of high school students get the recommended levels of physical activity.”

With some lifestyle changes, we hope to put kids on the right path for a healthier future.
