Almost one out of three children in the United States is overweight.

If you're a parent who is concerned about keeping your kids fit and healthy, find feedback from other parents and experts in this community.

I have a 6 year old daughter who just started Kindergarten and a 2.5 year old daughter. Many members of my family do not live healthy lives - I hope to turn that around with my kids!

Looking forward to sharing with you all -

I have two sons, ages 20 and 13. Both are rail thin and can eat whatever they want no matter how active they are.

We are an active family with sports and outdoor activities.

I think offering kids good food and activites is much better than the "diet" route although a physician's recommendation should be followed if there are health concerns.
