September is National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month
Let's keep our children happy and healthy. Physical activity and proper nutrition together help reduce the risk of childhood obesity. One child in three is overweight or obese. American Indian and Alaska Native children are greatly affected by this health condition. Help build awareness and take action in your home, school, or community.
