ABSTRACT
The article reports on research by Datamonitor which found that 40.7% of children in the U.S. between the ages of 5 and 13 are obese or overweight. Researchers predict that the number of such children in the country will increase to 43.4% by 2014. The trend is attributed to the increasingly sedentary lifestyle of children, as well as to their consumption of confectionary snacks at more than twice the rate of the overall population.
