Good nutrition and active life routines must be teached since we are childs. But never is late for a change of course, lots of people think once they grew up and they are overweight it is too late for achieve any change. Thats not true.

I do not seem to agree with you on this. While it can be true for the majority, being overweight or obese is not as miserable as you make it out to be. We are just as happy as everyone else, they’re are stores that only have heavier people clothes and some of us just like being big! Stick that in your report Harvard!

Maybe it’s true for you . But you’re not the all. Why do you think that the children will feel ashamed, shy .the children will be limited., not take part in the activies . And the bottom line that the overweight won’t have a good health .

This is so true. Many children now a days spend most of there time indoors playing video games or doing something else instead of have an hour of outdoors exercise. Exercise is the key to having a healthy life.
