September is Childhood Obesity Awareness Month

September is Childhood Obesity Awareness Month. In Colorado, one of every eight children age 2-14 years are obese. Colorado ranks as the leanest state for adults, but 29th for childhood obesity prevalence among children age 10-17 years. 

The Colorado Parks and Recreation Association has put together some resources for committed health partners who want to spread awareness on this important topic.
