Nearly one in three children in America is overweight or obese, increasing their risk for asthma, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, sleep problems, depression and bullying.
Some of the contributing factors are decreased exercise; large portion sizes; too much refined foods; not enough whole grains, fruits, and vegetables; and the inability for low-income families to access healthy foods.
InStep For Life has been designed to address one of these issues by encouraging exercise.
