Couch-potato kids are biggest child health problem in the U.S., adults say
from The Sacramento Bee
Adults across the U.S. rate not getting enough exercise as the top health concern for children in 2012, according to a new University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children's Hospital National Poll on Children's Health. In the poll's annual top 10 list, a nationwide sample of adults were asked to identify the top 10 biggest health concerns for kids in their communities. For the first time, not enough exercise was rated by most adults at the top of the list (39 per cent). That was followed closely by childhood obesity (38 per cent) and smoking and tobacco use (34 per cent).
