  • 19. If we do not soon end this battle of obesity in our country, our children are in for a rough future. We have to maintain Physical Education in our society today. We have to encourage our children to play outside as much as possible. Instead of fast food, get back to eating home cooked meals. Limit the hours of video games played, make them read a book. Work out as adults so our children may learn from example. If we do these simple things, we will help with the battle against obesity!!!!!!
