Help Fight Childhood Obesity in Texas


Share On Social!

Did you know that almost one-third of Texas children are overweight or obese? Overweight kids have a 70% chance of becoming overweight adults, and overweight adults run the risk of developing cancer.

With your help, we can start reversing these rates and protect Texas children from a lifetime of health problems.

Send a message today to the State Board of Education today urging members to keep strong physical education (PE) and health requirements in Texas schools. Not only do healthier youth become healthier adults, they also become better learners who perform better academically.
