Facts:

The rate of childhood obesity in children 0-4 years in the Eastern Caribbean doubled from 7.4% – 14.8% between 2000-2010?

 Obese children are more likely to be ill, absent from school due to illness, experience health-related limitations and require more medical care than normal weight children.

 Overweight and obese children are more likely to become obese adults, and have a higher risk of disease, disability and premature death.
