We have heard the statistics, but I think our children need to know them too. 17% of children are obese, meaning that their body mass index (based on height and weight) is at or above the 95th percentile for their age and gender. While that statistic is a concern, what is more alarming is that over a third of adults are obese. Obesity, as we know, contributes to shorter lifespans and a decreased quality of life. As homeschoolers, we want to teach our children the life skills they need to avoid obesity now and as adults.
