Parents have been bombarded with the message that kids need to exercise more and eat less... and what they do eat needs to be healthy. Schools have replaced junk food in their vending machines with healthy snacks and efforts have been made to educate parents, but sadly, the effects of these efforts have been minimal. Obesity in children continues to be... well, a 'growing' trend.

According to recent studies, kids are actually consuming more candy and junk food than anyone and they're excercising LESS than ever before.
