Georgia pediatrician Dr. Stephanie Kong and her practice Zoe Pediatric believe the battle against childhood obesity can be fought…and won. They believe in awareness and prevention and want parents to be partners in helping their children stay healthy and fit.
Although obesity rates have dropped 43% among preschool children in the last decade, according to study results from the Centers for Disease Control earlier this year, parents must still be vigilant. Fighting childhood obesity is something that First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign has championed and she applauded the positive news.
“I am thrilled at the progress we’ve made over the last few years in obesity rates among our youngest Americans,” Mrs. Obama said in a statement.
