Obesity in children is a special challenge because children, generally, cannot choose their own food. They eat what adults give them to eat. So if they're raised on a diet of cookies and soda, that's what they eat, and then they become obese. They're "helpless" and can rarely make other choices.

How can we help to reverse the trend of childhood obesity?
