Study Ranks Ohio Sixth In The Nation For Child Obesity

A new study by the non-partisan Robert Wood Johnson Foundation shows child obesity remains a major health challenge in Ohio.  

The study shows nearly 19-percent of Ohio kids ages ten to 17 are obese, the sixth-highest rate in the nation.  Those children will be at higher risk of contracting diabetes, heart disease and other health problems as they get older.
