“According to the most recent National Health And Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES),
16.9 percent of children ages 2 to 19 are obese, and
31.7 percent are overweight or obese,”
according to Ryan Masters, PhD who conducted research as a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health & Society Scholar at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health.
“This translates to more than 12 million children and adolescents who are obese and more than 23 million who are either obese or overweight.”
