Latest Childhood Obesity Levels

With both a baby and a toddler, mom Katie Gorsky is constantly making meals and snacks. She makes a point to keep them healthy. “I think it’s really important it can help with their development and their growth and it’s better to give them health foods and help fight obesity.” More moms may be gaining interest in their kids’ weight and nutrition. The CDC released new findings that suggest the level of childhood obesity may be leveling off. Dr. Nancy Witham sees the issue firsthand. “We’re looking at somewhere around, in Florida anyway, 30% of our pediatric population – that’s children under 17 – are described as overweight or obese,” says Dr. Witham, a pediatrician with Lee Memorial Health System. Previous studies predicted obesity among children would hit 30% by 2030, but the rapid weight gain seen in children in the 80s and 90s may have leveled off instead of continuing to rise, meaning parents may be getting the message. “I think parents need to be vigilant about what their child is eating for many, many years. Just like you would about what they watch on television or who they play with,” says Dr. Witham. Activity is the other side of the coin. Kids today just aren’t getting as much exercise as they should. The study found boys are more likely to be overweight than girls and they’re also more likely to spend their time playing video games. “Numerous national studies have shown that there is an increase rate of obesity if you’re also leading a sedentary life style.

403 Park Access, Schools and Child Obesity by State Assembly District

403 Park Access, Schools and Child Obesity by State Assembly District

Levels of child obesity range from 23 to 39% in Los Angeles County, as shown in Map 403.

There are unfair school, park, and health disparities in Los Angeles. Children of color living in poverty disproportionately lack access to parks, to school fields, to healthy food in grocery stores and restaurants, and to cars or transit to reach parks, schools, or healthy foods. They suffer from the highest levels of child obesity.

The health implications of the lack of places to play in parks and schools are profound. In California, 73% of fifth, seventh, and ninth graders did not achieve minimum physical fitness standards in 2004. In LAUSD, 87% of students were not physically fit. Yet in 2006, 51% of school districts monitored in California, including LAUSD, did not enforce statutory physical education requirements. At LAUSD’s South Gate High School, 1,600 children took the state Fitnessgram test and not one passed. Forty schools did not have a single physically fit student. Less than 10% of students were physically fit in nearly one-third of the 605 schools in LAUSD. Only eight schools had student populations that are more than 50% physically fit.

HCG Diet Direct Encourages Dieters to Accommodate Public Health Recommendations: Eating Together as a Family Results in Decreased Obesity Risks


HCG Diet Direct logo


Phoenix, AZ (Vocus) September 20, 2009

HCG Diet Direct dieters are urged to sit down to dinner and spend it eating with their family. It may sound contradictory at first, but children and teens who sit down to eat with their families frequently have shown lower risks of obesity in various studies. (CMAJ, v.173(6)) HCG Diet Direct also promotes the additional family meal time benefits of introducing your family to healthy foods, healthy food preparation and HCG approved foods (although portion control isn’t recommended for family members not on the diet) It’s excellent exposure to healthy eating habits for the entire family.

HCG Diet Direct spokeswoman, Jenny Boynton, said, “People who introduce healthy foods prepared in a healthy way are much more likely to succeed on the program and maintain their weight afterward. They will have helped their entire family be more comfortable eating healthy and enjoying foods that they might otherwise not been exposed to. And by doing so…they’re decreasing the risk of obesity in their children. It’s a win-win situation.”

Lisa M. of Provo said, “I completed the HCG diet last year. Since then our family probably enjoys 3 or 4 HCG approved recipes per week. My son was in the very topmost regions of weight averages for his age a few years back and he has since dropped down to a safer percentage. It’s a big relief that we got it done without having to instill in him a fear of eating. He just learned to enjoy better food choices.”

Other benefits that studies have indicated come with sharing meals frequently as a family are: children are less likely to smoke or drink alcohol or become involved with eating disorders. Children who frequently sit down to eat with their families are also more likely to excel in school and exhibit fewer behavioral issues.
