Depressing Facts on the Childhood Obesity Epidemic [INFOGRAPHIC]
Ready to feel good and jumpstart your day? Well, do that a different day. Here’s an intermission from a study out of USC that reminds us of notions that children spend an average of 7.5 hours a day using entertainment media, 4.5 of which are spent watching TV. Not that we help the cause at all, but the infographic points out that the average teen eats fast food twice a week, and only 3 out of 10 high schoolers report eating vegetables every day.
Without further ado, we’ll let the USC School of Education jump right in and showcase their new Childhood Obesity Epidemic infographic so you can know a bit more facts about health and nutrition amidst today’s youth. The infographic is a timely integration into this week’s celebration of National School Lunch Week, which runs from October 10 to October 14th, and stresses the importance of the 2011 theme — Let’s Grow Healthy.
