Some would say that childhood obesity is not a problem. But this kind of statistic is scary..given that health problems that previously were something that adults had to deal with are now diagnosed at much earlier ages: diabetes, hypertension and heart disease.

This video posted by SaludToday is about Hispanic children..but has dire implications for children all across America. Particularly the impact of negative marketing and increased screen time has on physical activity and caloric intake.

I am a firm believer that obesity is not just a personal issue, but an environmental one. However, after watching this video, what are some actions that you can take to help fight childhood obesity?
