Report cards: How are schools fighting childhood obesity?

For the past several years, childhood obesity has been a leading health concern of adults across the country for kids in their communities. Children spend a majority of their waking hours in school, so schools have tried to fight obesity by offering healthier lunches and more physical activity.

But are these efforts working? To find out how school obesity efforts are performing, we asked parents to grade the obesity efforts of their children’s schools.

The results of this National Poll on Children’s Health will be released early next week. See the results as soon as they’re published by signing up for our mailing list. You can also share your thoughts in the comments or on Facebook and Twitter @MottNPCH.
