There is a solution to Childhood Obesity


I am sure you are aware that Childhood Obesity has become a nationwide epidemic. Here are some statistics for you to consider:

  • 1 in 5 children are obese
  • Obese children average 4-6 hours of TV per day
  • Nearly one-third of U.S. Children aged 4 to 19 eat fast food every day,
  • Only Illinois has a statewide requirement for daily physical education as of January 2007.

While trying out for NBC’s The Biggest Loser I was able to identify that my adult obesity was really rooted in my childhood. Ironically, it was not my activity levels that were the problem when I was young but rather it was the fact that I never learned proper nutrition. This was a result of being transient due to my mother’s mental illness and living in and out of foster care and group homes.

Because of this upbringing I have a real desire to see youth grow up mentally and physically healthy. I also have a desire to help parents make smart decisions about there children’s lives when it comes to health and nutrition. To help me get across this message of proper nutrition and exercise I have teamed up with
JazzyKat, Inc. and JazzyKat Kids to not only tell kids how to get healthy but to show them as well.

The folk at JazzyKat have a passion to reach this and the next generation of children (and their families) to take ownership of their own good health through physical activity and balanced eating. The core target audience is children 18 months – 12 years old, and this age group is engaged with a mobile TrAvEl
GyM™ which consists of child sized exercise equipment and games suited for a child’s physical needs as well as a Healthy Lifestyles nutrition program that provides age appropriate education.

While I have the experience of being overweight from an adult perspective, JazzyKat Inc. are real specialists when it comes to dealing with children. Together I think we make a great team.

Our solution to the obesity epidemic:

Engage parents and children to begin to make healthy choices about nutrition and exercise with real life success stories and solid information.

    That is great to hear. I also am becoming more concerned with the weight of our youth and the choices of food they eat. I know that after completing your program and sharing that with my sister she has been able to make the same changes I have. This new education on eating has helped her lose 16 lbs. and help her over weight 6 year old start losing weight. Now her kids can tell you about making healthy choices to eat vs. poor choices to eat. Thanks Pete for not only helping me but helping my sister and her kids.
