Nearly one-third of American children are either overweight or obese, according to recent reports. That’s why National PTA┬« and Jamie Oliver, renowned chef and TV personality, created a toolkit for parents and families that features easy-to-use information on nutrition and physical activity.

“National PTA is working to mobilize parents and families to end the nation’s growing childhood obesity epidemic. By giving them the resources they need, like this toolkit, we are empowering families to eat healthy foods and to be active together,” said Charles J. “Chuck” Saylors, National PTA President. “Now more than ever, it is important to act and provide solutions and tools for families to address this important issue.”
