Description

In the past three decades, the number of obese and overweight individuals in Iowa and across the nation has skyrocketed. With obesity comes the greater risk of health complications and life expectancy reduction. As a result, the current generation of youth face a new and growing threat to the overall quality of life. In Iowa alone, 37.1% of 3rd grade students identify as either overweight or obese.
