Minnesotans for Healthy Kids Unveils New Webpage!

Now is the time to act so our kids can have a healthy future! Childhood obesity has almost tripled since 1980 from 6.5 percent to 16.3 percent. Obese children have a higher likelihood of becoming obese adults, which contributes to many life-threatening diseases such as Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke. This could be the first generation to live shorter lives than their parents!

Visit the Minnesotans for Healthy Kids webpage today!

On the site, you will find:
Tools and Resources for Parents, Schools, and Kids
