Modern Day Parenting: Why Comparing Yourself To Others May Not Be A High Enough Standard

More American Children are Obese:

“Although there are some genetic or hormonal causes of childhood obesity, in most cases excess weight is due to overeating and under-exercising. Unhealthy lunch options and regular consumption of high-calorie foods, like fast food, cookies and other baked goods, soda, candy, chips and vending machine snacks contribute to weight gain. Snacking is another major culprit: new research shows that American children are snacking more than ever before — sometimes almost continuously throughout the day — accounting for up to 27% of their daily caloric intake.”
