Hey everyone! My name is Christina, and I'm an editor for BabyJock.com. I've got to admit, this is my first time on a forum, so bear with me!! :D
Baby Jock is a new brand in the baby industry. Even though we're new and we're a small group-- we've got big dreams. Our main focus is putting an end to childhood obesity in the US.
Seriously, childhood obesity in our country is ridiculous. According to the American Heart Association, 1 in 3 children are overweight or obese (THIS IS COMPLETELY TRUE! Go to http://tinyurl.com/8gmoxgf and read for yourself!)
They are even predicting that because of this, the next generation will be the first with a shorter lifespan than their parents.
This is unacceptable.
Now, I'm sure you all know about Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" campaign, but we feel that it's not enough. Parents also need information. They need to be educated on how to keep their kids healthy. They need to know how to build a healthy lifestyle in their child.
I would really like to hear your thoughts and opinions on the childhood obesity epidemic. Do you have any ideas? What can we do to help change the way things are? ↓
