The percentage of children aged 6–11 years in the United States who were obese increased from 7% in 1980 to nearly 18% in 2012. Similarly, the percentage of adolescents aged 12–19 years who were obese increased from 5% to nearly 21% over the same period. Overweight and obesity are the result of “caloric imbalance” or too few calories expended for the amount of calories consumed, primarily because of lack of exercise.
With childhood and adolescent obesity increasing within recent years, I thought it would be a good idea to share some light on this subject. I decided to mix it up and do this by making my video a little differently. Hope you guys like it!
