Childhood Obesity

Almost 1 in 5 children between the ages of 6-9 in the United States are obese. High sugar intake, fast food, unhealthy snacks, TV ads and poor family control are among the main reason of childhood obesity. Surprisingly, the average American child consumes 32 teaspoons of sugar per day! This is highly above the amount of sugar that adult Americans consume (22 teaspoons) and is much more than the maximum recommended limit (6 teaspoons for women and 9 for men).
