Studies show the obesity rate among children has nearly doubled in the last 10 years. Obesity can cause health problems in kids today and also leads to problems, such as diabetes and heart disease, as they grow to adulthood. Southern Apparel provides southern, stylish, comfortable tshirts that look good on anybody. A portion of your order goes to help prevent childhood obesity by being donated to the United Way Healthy and Kids program. This United Way program “promotes youth health and wellness through fun, effective and practical ideas for groups of all ages, interests and abilities.”
Why the United Way Fit Kids?
Some are blessed to have parents, coaches, mentors, and teachers that stressed the importance of physical fitness at an early age. Although, Some kids aren’t nearly as lucky. Not to mention, kids today have more distractions than ever to keep them lazy. While obesity is a disease, 95% of it is laziness, and can be prevented with the proper knowledge.
