Obesity

Academic

Health

Mental Health

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.

  • Asthma -  Obese children and teens used more medicine, and a made more unscheduled visits to emergency rooms than non-obese peers.
  • Type 2 Diabetes - Obesity in children and adolescents led to an increase in Type 2 diabetes that can cause blindness, heart and kidney disease.
  • High Blood Pressure - found more commonly in obese children and adolescents compared to their non-obese peers.

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.

    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.
