Did you see the news? New York City recently announced that they've achieved a significant drop in the rate of severe obesity among our city's kids. A nearly 10% decline of this leading cause of heart disease and stroke is a tremendous achievement! However, the thing I liked most about this announcement (linked below), is the city's eye to the future. It's right there in Commissioner's Bassett top quote. More needs to be done. Chancellor Farina's quote is an important one as well. If health and wellness are truly top priorities for this administration - let's work together to pass laws that will serve to protect more kids from the dangers of inactivity and poor nutrition!
