Childhood obesity is a serious health problem in the United States where 1 in 5 children and adolescents are affected. Childhood obesity puts kids at risk for health problems that were once only seen in adults, such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease. There are opportunities to change these trends. September is National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month and Cosumnes CSD encourages your family to attend this FREE event to learn how to make healthy changes together. Children are encouraged to come dressed in superhero style!
