Childhood Obesity is a serious epidemic in North America. Nearly a third of our children are overweight or obese,…and the numbers continue to rise.
At younger and younger ages, Doctors are treating children with significant medical complications related to being obese, such as, Type-2 Diabetes, Hypertension, and elevated Cholesterol.

We’re at risk of raising supersized kids who may live sicker and die younger than the generation before them.

“Our Supersized Kids” profiles four families whose grade school children are overweight or obese. Each of these families are actively working to help their child turn around an out-of-control weight gain. The documentary highlights their struggles and successes, along with providing helpful tips from Pediatricians.

    If the average weight of children is rising and the body mass index compares you to the average weight of other children won't the capacity of weight that is classified as overweight or obese grow?

  13. GamingAngel says:

    The mom says that diabetes is inreversible. True if it is Type 1 and need to take insulin injections. Sooooooo not true for type 2. That is from poor diet. Improve the sugar levels in blood and diabetes will go away. This can be done in a matter of weeks. People really need to learn about nutrition…..
