Childhood Obesity Revealed


Teaching children to make nutritionally sound eating decisions is the first step in fitting the epidemic of childhood obesity.

San Francisco, CA, September 12, 2006 --(PR.com)-- Obesity rates among children 6-11 years old have tripled in the past three decades, states Nicole Zambrano, nutritionist at Kids Culinary Adventures.

“Families are not teaching children the healthy eating habits. It is far easier to prevent obesity through proper nutrition education at a young age than to resolve issues with obesity later in life,” according to Zambrano.

“One of the best ways to prevent obesity is to focus on the development of culinary skills,” asserts Chef Gayle Gaggero, CEO of Kids Culinary Adventures.

Teaching children to take responsibility for their own health and nutrition is the first step to maintaining a healthy life. Gaggero recommends that children have time and education to learn how to choose foods. When children learn culinary skills, their overall health is enhanced.

“When kids learn the importance of eating healthy, there’s always a sense of pride and excitement when they show off their new skills and information. They are their own best advocates. We see kids reminding parents to buy the ingredients rather than pre-prepared foods,” states Gaggero. “The critical factor in reducing obesity rates is teaching children to take responsibility for their own health.”

Kids Culinary Adventures (www.kca-ca.com) teaches children and teens to apply academics, including math, anthropology, science, and art, through the culinary arts. KCA staff includes professional chefs, special needs specialists, and bilingual staff members.
