I was a bit taken aback by the questions as I assumed there was enough published advice out there already, including on this blog, but maybe I was wrong.

Prevent Obesity Dot Net!

 

playground

Childhood obesity is a growing problem in the United States and around the world.

This website is the spearhead of a campaign to fight childhood obesity by improving the food environments for children and their parents. They do this by promoting safe routes to walk or bike to school, access to healthy foods in low-income neighborhoods, healthy foods in schools, recess and other physical activity periods in schools, and equality for people of all races and socio-economic statuses.

Everyone has the right to good nutrition. Let’s get children and adults active and healthy! ^_^

He also wrote, “Hurricane Sandy flooded our house, forcing us to move out while demolishing our floors and walls. Since my wife is pregnant I haven’t let her stay in the house for too long, so she wanted to see the progress we’ve been making. We found this on taped to our door. No Name, No contact information, completely anonymous. I wish I could hug and thank this person, it really brought our spirits up.”
