Yes: The overall trend in childhood obesity has increased over the past 10 years. This has become a more recognized problem in schools and fortunately some systems are making more changes by eliminating vending machines and providing more balanced and nutritious meals during lunch. Hopefully this will make an impact in the long term but as of now the incidence is still rising.
