  • Poor diet and lack of physical activity contribute to the rise in childhood obesity. Only 52% of middle school students and 43% of high school students in Georgia currently meet the CDC recommendations for physical activity. More than 44% of Georgia’s middle school students and 39% of high school students watch television for three or more hours on a school day and only 17% of high school students in Georgia consume five or more servings of fruits and vegetables a day. In 2008, Georgians spent $2.4 billion on the direct medical costs of obesity and lost productivity from disease, disability and death. In Georgia, obesity- related hospitalizations of children aged 2 – 19 years increased 338% over the eleven year period from 1999 to 2010.
