Frightening Facts.

More than one-third of U.S. adults (35.7%) are obese.  Approximately 17% (or 12.5 million) of children and adolescents aged 2—19 years are obese.

Better advice needed
Overall, 59.25% of adults with obesity had ever received advice from a health provider to exercise more.

Pathway to obesity
Obese adolescents are more likely to become obese adults.

More increasing childhood obesity rates
Among preschool children aged 2-5, obesity increased from 5.0% to 10.4% between 1976-1980 and 2007-2008 and from 6.5% to 19.6% among those aged 6-11. Among adolescents aged 12-19, obesity increased from 5.0% to 18.1% during the same period.

Cost of childhood obesity
Childhood obesity alone carries a huge price tag-up to $14 billion per year in health care costs to treat kids.

Reduced life expectancies

Unless the childhood obesity epidemic is reversed, experts warn that excess weight could reduce average life expectancy by five years or more over the next several decades.
