Obese kids

I found this news story shocking and alarming. One in five 4-year-olds is obese.   Four-year-olds are usually so active and what they eat is still "suppose" to be monitored by adults.   Something is wrong here.  Something is very wrong.

More people really need to think about these statistics.  I understand the genetic issue for some kids and empathize deeply with those children.  But I think we as a society need to take action to help kids eat healthy and be active.  How can we think this is okay?  How can we sit by and watch this happen?  I'm very concerned about this issue and it seems as though it will be around for some time.
