At least 1 child in 4 in the U.S. today is seriously overweight, and that number keeps growing.
Over the last 20 years, the number of overweight children has increased by more than 50% and the number of extremely overweight children has nearly doubled.
40 million American children have abnormally high cholesterol levels. By the age of 12, an estimated 70% of U.S. children have developed the beginning stages of hardening of the arteries.
Please mandate all Colorado Schools to serve healthy school lunches, which should include fruits and non-fried vegetables, lean, non-fried, non-breaded meats, whole grains, low-fat dairy products, and 100% juices.
