Child Obesity InfoGraphic

In recognition of National School Lunch Week (NSLW) 2011 (running Monday, October 10 through Friday, October 14) we’ve created an infographic about the childhood obesity epidemic. It’s important that we help students understand where food comes from and the nutritional benefits that go along with the food they consume. During this week, the School Nutrition Association, as well as teachers, parents, community members and educators around the country will help highlight to students the benefit that school lunch can provide for kids to grow strong and healthy.

  1. Let's not forget to add that elementary schools are increasingly taking away recess and have PE for less then 1 hour a week. I work at one of those schools and absolutely hate it because we don't have anything to help them get their energy out during the day which makes being a support teacher a nightmare.

  2. Infants drinking soda? That's not right.
