We must address the problem of childhood obesity.
WHITE LAKE, MICHIGAN (PRWEB) July 25, 2012
Obesity in America is rising, according to a recent report from the Institute of Medicine, and the solution requires a collaborative partnership between the public and private sectors. Industries, the government, academia and nongovernmental organizations are coming together to achieve meaningful public health results. Doing their part to aid in the fight against obesity, Eat to Win is offering games designed to help children learn the importance of healthy eating, nutrition and physical activity.
“We will soon be introducing new Eat to Win Flashcards,” says Gary Gabel, co-founder of Eat to Win, “and our early testing of these in preschools is succeeding beyond our expectations. We believe our Flashcards will also gain support from elementary schools across the country in their efforts to teach children from Kindergarten through 5th Grade about nutrition, healthy eating and the importance of physical activity.”
“The growing obesity in America problem among children calls for new approaches like Eat to Win’s Nutrition and Weight Loss games,” says creator of Eat to Win, Jammi Roscoe. “Learning the importance of eating right and engaging in physical activities at a young age helps children get a jump on healthy behaviors, so it’s ingrained in them by adulthood.”
According to a recent report by the Institute of Medicine, two thirds of adults and one third of children are overweight or obese. And by 2030, about 42% of the U.S. population will be obese, according to another recent report in the American Journal of Preventative Medicine.
Inspired by her son who was forced to wear a large X on his football uniform as a notice to limit his play due to being overweight, Jammi created the Eat to Win games to help him and other children lose weight. The Eat to Win Nutrition Game and the Eat to Win Weight Loss Game were created as fun ways to help a child learn the importance of healthy eating while actively participating to lose weight.
The Eat to Win Food Tracker also helps ensure children eat from all five food groups as recommended by MyPlate.gov. For these reasons, Eat to Win games are contributing to the USDA’s Nutrition Policy and Promotion initiative to improve the nutrition and well-being of Americans.
