The symposium was held at Schroeder Park in Broadview, Illinois and hosted speakers from the community, the US House of Representatives, health care professionals and childcare providers.
It was great to see that finally others are actually realizing that not all cases of childhood obesity comes from an unhealthy lifestyle. I think some of the major food companies need to be held accountable. They need to shed light on all the chemicals and hormones they are using in the foods they 'deem' as safe. The cancer causing agents, the hormones that are making our young children go into puberty early. Let's talk about that. It's pure greed! And it's SAD....
Childhood obesity has become a 'stigma' and our babies are being bullied and ridiculed because of it.
