By gbrandenburg on in Uncategorized
On August 31, 2012, President Obama signed a proclamation regarding National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month, September 2012. In the proclamation, he urges Americans to promote healthy living for our children:
“Each of us can play a role in ensuring our children have the opportunity to live long, healthy lives, and by joining together in pursuit of that mission, I am confident we can build a brighter future for America’s youth.”
Join the movement to raise a healthier generation of kids! There are opportunities for all of us — parents and caregivers, elected officials from all levels of government, schools, health care professionals, faith-based and community-based organizations, and private sector companies — to play a role in ensuring a healthy future for our children.
