The Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota developed an infographic titled “The Weight of Childhood Obesity.” The graphic cites statistics and preventive measures from multiple sources, including the Minnesota Department of Education, Health, Human Services and Public Safety, various journals, and the Institute of Medicine.
The infographic accompanies a three-part report of issues critical to the health of Minnesota youth. Its third part, Check Up 3: Starting Early to Prevent Childhood Obesity examines how obesity is affecting kids and families in the region.
