DEDICATED TO WIPING OUT CHILDHOOD OBESITY ONE CHILD AT A TIME
There is a war going on in America and Columbus Ink Foundation is ready for the fight. Studies show that our children are getting fatter and unhealthy. The First Lady Michelle Obama has some good ideas: get kids moving, cut out the junk food and get them interested in eating fresh, nourishing food -- last year she planted a vegetable garden at the White House with the help of some youngsters. But the biggest change has to come by educating the parents, many of whom are overweight themselves. They are they ones to carry the mantle if our children have a chance at success so our focus must be on them take the lead.
Dr. Christine Woods, a practicing pediatrician and certified lactation educator and author of the book, How to Get Kids to Eat Great & Love It! kidseatgreat says, "Parents need to realize what an important job they have to teach their kids healthy eating habits, to use proper nutritional supplementation and to participate in regular physical activity. Parents must start today and model a healthy lifestyle and do all they can to create children who will eat healthy and be active. It is perhaps the greatest gift we can give our children . . . the gift of health.
I believe that we all have a responsibility to help each other in any way possible and I hope to inspire others to be a beacon of light in this sometime confusing but amazing planet we call home.
