The weight of the nation

The film 'Children in Crisis' encourages parents to take action to fight obesity and overweight.
UC Cooperative Extension in Tulare County offers a free screening of a film that addresses the increasing level of overweight and obesity in the United States, reported the Visalia Times-Delta.

The film, titled “Children in Crisis,” is the third part of the HBO series “The Weight of the Nation." The film will show at 1 p.m. Friday, Sept. 21, at the Agriculture Building Auditorium, 4437 S. Laspina St., Tulare.

Obesity is an on-going issue in Tulare County, Cathi Lamp is quoted in the article. Lamp is the UC Cooperative Extension advisor in Tulare County for nutrition, family and consumer sciences.

She is no stranger to the health issues that plague the county’s children. Lamp has been part of campaigns to stop people from drinking sugary drinks and to encourage healthful eating habits as well as incorporate physical activity into their lives, the article said.
