Childhood obesity is now regarded as the No. 1 health concern among parents in the U.S., topping drug abuse and smoking.
Parents can be part of the solution and can improve the health of their children by making lifestyle changes including offering healthier foods and more opportunities for physical activity.
With nearly 25 million kids overweight or obese, parents need to embrace the role they play by ensuring the health of their kids.
September is Go Healthy Month, and the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, a partnership between the American Heart Association and the William J. Clinton Foundation, is asking parents and kids to make this No. 1 concern their No. 1 priority.
