  1. I appreciated listening to your information on childhood obesity. That is very interesting to hear you mentioning a healthy diet, eating breakfast, and eating meals together, and for children to be more active. Parents helping their children to be more active and supervising them. Parents finding the time when they are both working, is a real challenge for some parents even though the exercise is so often needed by the parents too. Many thanks.
