Another sad report of obesity among children, this one about 10 and 11 year olds. These reports are more and more common today, with sobering statistics showing how many children are overweight or obese. And the numbers aren't getting better:

GROUPS in Hucknall, through the Dispatch’s ‘Fit, Healthy and Happy campaign’, are being urged to tackle childhood obesity — after statistics revealed a third of all local ten and 11-year-olds are overweight.

Ashfield also has the highest number of obese adults compared to the rest of the county at 28 per cent. This could be related to also having the lowest consumption rates of fruit and vegetables....More at Third of all ten and 11-year-olds classed as obese

Note the comment the area also has the highest number of adult obesity in the county as well, proof that children watch and do as their parents. It's critical that if we want healthy and normal weight children, we parents have to set a good example.

And more importantly, note that the area also has the lowest rate of fruit and vegetable consumption. Could this have ANYTHING to do with the high obesity rate? Again, more proof that a diet high in fresh fruits and veggies is critical to successful weight loss.

The one thing you can do to regain your normal body weight, if you're trying to lose weight, is to eat as many fruits and vegetables as possible, and remove most, if not all, processed and cooked foods. This is the single most important factor in being able to lose weight.
