Obesity in kids

There's an article in the New York Times on obesity in America. 13.9% of preschoolers are now obese. That's not overweight, that's obese. That's three out of 20 obese preschoolers. 18.8% of 6-11 year olds are obese. That means that there is not one fat kid in your class of 20 (like when we grew up), there are four fat kids. We need to do better.
