Problem Statement
... continues to be a critical health issue
according to RWJF, SC's 10 to 17-year-olds have the second highest obesity prevalence in the US
being overweight/obese can put children at a higher risk of health problems: heart disease, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, stroke, cancer, asthma and osteoarthritis
inequities persist: obesity rates are higher among children of color and families living in poverty
rates in Spartanburg County reflect most state and national trends, indicating an alarming prevalence of overweight and obese children
What causes childhood obesity?
(it's not just calories in-calories out)
Behavioral decisions are not made without connection to many other important factors -
- Where families live, learn, work and play all have a major impact on the choices they are able to make
For example:
inexpensive, processed foods are widely available, while healthy foods are often more expensive and harder to find in some neighborhoods
safe, accessible places to be physically active
are not always available
