from By Dr. Georgene Collins
It's back-to-school time, and there is great news recently published on childhood obesity statistics. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, childhood obesity statistics are on a downward trend. Although more work is needed, this is great news and shows the improvements work. This is especially true among low-income children ages 2-4. Among this group, there was a net decrease in obesity rates in 16 of 43 states and territories.
