More obesity in poor kids, study shows

Low-income children in Colorado are three times more likely to be obese than the kids of more affluent parents, according to an article in the Rocky Mountain News. About a quarter of children living in households that earn less than $25,000 a year are obese, compared with 8 percent of children living in households with $75,000 or more in income. The “Income, Education and Obesity” study was conducted by the Colorado Health Foundation.
