Share Your Love for Cereal: Fighting Obesity & Giveaway (ends July 9th)
This is the fourth and final installment of the Share Your Love for Cereal Campaign.
Who isn't concerned about obesity in children? Today obesity levels for all age groups are creeping upwards, but most alarming are the childhood rates because this can lead to a lifetime of weight issues and associated health risks.
A recent study shows 77 percent of D.C. parents believe maintaining a healthy body weight is important to ensuring their child´s health.
When it comes to fighting childhood obesity, there is a lot to love about cereal. Frequent cereal eaters tend to have healthier body weights. That´s true of men, women and children who choose sweetened cereals.
* Teen girls who eat cereal are less likely to become overweight than non cereal eaters.
* Boys´ cereal consumption is associated with lower body mass index (BMI).
