FREE LiveFit & LiveWell Classes During Childhood Obesity Awareness Month

September is National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month. The City of Southlake Parks and Recreation is joining in the national effort to bring attention to the dangers and health risks of children who are overweight.

Did you know one in three children in the United States is overweight or obese? Childhood obesity puts more kids at risk for type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke, but many of these conditions are preventable through lifestyle changes. In some communities the childhood obesity rate is as high as 40 percent. And the U.S. childhood obesity rates are 3X greater than they were in 1980 according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The good news is there’s hope. Families can help an overweight child get healthy by making changes in their daily food intake and joining a program to help shed the pounds and develop an active lifestyle. Mayor Laura Hill says, “Getting healthy is so much easier when the whole family does it together. I would like to encourage everyone to look over the FREE LiveFit and LiveWell classes that are being offered and find one or two that’s right for your family.”
