Childhood obesity: The government has began some plans in helping educate and treat the increasing problem of childhood obesity but the real prevention should start at home with educating families on eating healthier and exercising regularly.

See link: see the link choosemyplate.gov and you will see how the government is recommending 1/4 plate as protein, 1/4 as fruit, 1/4 as vegetables and 1/4 as carbohydrates. There are also inidividual pages devoted to limiting sugar in the diet, and healthy choices to prevent obesity
