CDC works 24/7 to save lives and protect people. This month's Vital Signs (www.cdc.gov/vitalsigns/) has good news: Obesity rates are decreasing among our nation's low-income preschoolers. The federal WIC program has improved nutritional standards, and communities across the nation are taking action --increasing breastfeeding rates, improving nutrition and physical activity in child care, and keeping school playgrounds open during non-school hours, just to name a few ways that have been proven to work. Still, 1 in 8 preschoolers is obese. Obese children are more likely to become obese adults and have lifelong physical and mental health problems. Communities must continue to help our children thrive.
