Some Contributors to Childhood Obesity...

So, looking through various articles and information to bring to everyone's attention about childhood obesity, this article puts into perspective so many reasons why indeed our nation is in trouble with obesity in general.  As noted here, Michigan happens to be one of our states that has the highest obesity rates around.
But, as I've stated before in previous posts, there is not only one reason or one culprit or one thing -- it is a combination of things.  Parents should be better role models, although there are also other issues such as the abundant availability of fast food that is cheap, convenient and easy to eat.  Also, kids just are not as active as they once were due to an abundance of video games, computers, the never-ending T.V. accessibility and so on.  So what can you do to make a difference in your community?  Ideas? Thoughts?
Would love to hear them!
