Press Release Body: American parents and health experts have come to the realization that the increase in the number of obese children has become a public health issue. There are efforts on the way all over the country to draw attention to the problem and to find creative ways to reverse the trend. According to Andrea Vogt-Palmer of FitwithAndrea.com, childhood obesity is not only a physical health issue but has also a psychological component to it.
\"Studies have shown that obese children are more often subject to teasing, bullying and other types of abuse and are two to three times more likely to report suicidal thoughts,\" Vogt-Palmer said.
Parents and experts are hearing the call to action and are searching for ways on how to help kids to create healthy habits early by getting everybody involved, by making it a \"family affair,\" by improving school lunches, and by increasing physical activity during and after school. The \"Fit and Healthy Kids\" section of \"FitwithAndrea.com\" provides various ideas on that subject.
FitwithAndrea.com is committed to showing how you can transform to a healthy lifestyle by creating healthy eating habits, increasing physical activity, de-stressing your life and generally having a more positive mindset.
