A Fat Tuesday Message in 2017

[By Staff Reporters]

Six years ago, First Lady Michelle Obama kicked off a campaign to try to end childhood obesity within a generation.

Of course, with the impending Lenten season about to start, the timing could not be more prescient for a re-dedication to this goal.

Let’s Move

The campaign to end obesity is called: “Let’s Move“; local to Savannah, GA.

    About one-quarter (24.8%) of youth engaged in moderate-to-vigorous physical activity, including activities both in school and outside of school, for at least 60 minutes daily. Only 7.6% did not engage in moderate-to-vigorous physical activity for 60 minutes on any day of the week.

    Among boys, 27.0% engaged in moderate-to-vigorous physical activity for at least 60 minutes daily compared with 22.5% of girls. More than one-half (60.2%) of boys surveyed and about one-half (49.4%) of girls engaged in moderate-to-vigorous physical activity for at least 60 minutes on 5 days or more each week. Among boys, 6.4% did not engage in moderate-to-vigorous physical activity on any day of the week compared with 8.7% of girls. Differences between boys and girls were not statistically significant.

    Among boys who reported physical activity of any intensity in the past week, the most common activity was basketball, with about one-half (48.0%) of all active boys reporting that they played basketball. The second most common activity among physically active boys was running (33.5%), followed by football (27.4%).
