September was National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month. One-third of children, an estimated 14 million, in the U.S. are overweight or obese, and this number continues to increase yearly. Obesity during childhood can have a remarkable impact on both physical and mental health. Children are more likely to experience stress, low-self esteem, and sadness as a result. Childhood obesity can lead to persistent health issues such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol. The leading causes of childhood obesity are often genetic factors, too little physical activity, and unhealthy eating patterns.

Obesity is a national epidemic and affects the lives of many. Addressing these issues early on can help children grow up and adopt healthier habits to experience a fuller life. Viewpoint is proud to utilize its platform for education and bring awareness to people who may not otherwise be aware of it. Many organizations are highlighting new and unique approaches to addressing this issue, and experienced professionals will discuss these efforts in the episode. Actor Dennis Quaid will introduce and close out the Viewpoint episode featuring childhood obesity.
