I got in to an argument with a friend today about childhood obesity and technology! She doesn’t believe there is a connection. Her argument is that some kids are just overweight and technology has nothing to do with it.

Well in my opinion our kids spend too much time sitting on their behinds today. You very seldom see kids riding bicycles, in the park playing, around the corner playing in some type neighborhood game.

Today kids are playing video games, texting, watching YouTube or watching TV.

I’m not a doctor but I don’t think it takes a rocket scientist to realize these habits can’t be healthy.  Lack of activity is a major contributor to childhood obesity. Read it for yourself.
