New Report Finds a Shocking Rate of Childhood Obesity 


In the first annual State of Childhood Obesity report, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation found that 18.5% of kids in the U.S. have obesity. Across the nation, communities are helping to reverse the trend of childhood obesity through changes in public policy, community environments,  and industry practices.  

This report includes information on national and state childhood obesity rates, recommended policies to help address the epidemic, and stories of communities and individuals acting across the nation. Let’s work together to address this epidemic!
