Obesity Rates are Rising - the percentage of school-age children 6 - 11 that are overweight more than doubled between the late 1970's and 2000's, rising from 6.5% to 15.3%. The percentage of overweight adolescents ages 12 - 19 tripled form 5.0% to 15.5% during the same period.
Perhaps the most important consequence of poor nutrition is the impact on learning. A growing body of evidence demonstrates that children who eat poorly do not perform as well as they could academically. Well nourished students tend to be better students, while poorly nourished children tend to have weaker academic performance and score lower on standardized achievement tests.
Mental Health - Obesity has been associated with low self-esteem in some adolescents. Obese children with decreased levels of self-esteem reported increased rates of loneliness, sadness, and nervousness, and were more likely to report smoking and consuming alcohol.
Sleep Apnea - Studies report that up to 1/3 of obese children report symptoms consistent with those of sleep apnea, a disorder causing brief interruptions of breathing during sleep. This disorder is associated with decreased learning and memory function.

Nutrition & Dietary Counseling
Offered by Registered Dietitians to any NFI client. Individual or group sessions have a community or public health focus, and include topics such as portion control, healthy eating, hands-on food preparation, physical activity, goal-setting, and self-management. Follow-up reinforcement may include review sessions, group training, referral(s) to additional support services, and/or phone consultations.
Our primary goal is to promote nutrition education for all area child nutrition programs. Quality nutrition through a well balanced diet is foundational to a healthy lifestyle. Quality nutrition helps school-age children develop healthy minds which are essential to learning. Quality nutrition is also essential to combating our nation's childhood obesity epidemic.
