Obesity Rate Declines In New York City Schools

There are those who believe that obesity cannot be controlled. And there are those who believe that government should not serve in a "nanny" capacity. Of course, that depends upon what defines a "nanny" government. But unhealthy lifestyles and poor diet are a plague on the individual and society. It is not easy to control the situation but it can be done. The efforts in New York City schools appear to be yielding results. The number of obese NYC school children declined by 5.5 percent over the past five years. Other cities and towns can follow the example. It will save lives and it will save money.
