The purpose of the study was to obtain a better understanding of childhood eating habits and their association with race and gender. With this understanding, a sustainable intervention program that includes proper nutrition will help resolve the obesity issue that is affecting families throughout the nation.
The study collected the nutritional data on a total of 8,945 children that were surveyed by California Health Interview Survey (CHIS). The children varied in race, sex, family income, and education. The age range was 6 to 12.
The sources analyzed indicate that childhood obesity is increasing in alarming numbers throughout the United States. And that it can be directly attributed to nutrition and lack of physical exercise.
