Childhood obesity is a crippling crisis of supersized proportions. During the past four decades, obesity rates have soared among all ages, but no more so than in children ages 6 to 11. Today, nearly a third of our children and adolescents are overweight or obese. And the numbers continue to rise.
KSPS's Our Supersized Kids delves into the issues causing the childhood obesity epidemic in the Pacific Northwest and around the country and what’s being done about it. Families struggling with obesity are profiled along with successful programs.
Use the video segments and discussion questions to help students explore the major causes of the childhood obesity epidemic and what can be done about it. Visit KSPS Education for additonal educator resources.
