Obesity in children has been a major issue and parents seem to have very little interest or concern in this issue. This was shared by a health and wellness graduate assistant at Indiana University. The news detail is as follows:
A new poll released today shows a large a gap between parents’ perceptions of their children’s weight and expert definitions.

The poll was conducted by NPR,the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), and Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH).
