Could the alarming trend of overweight kids be reversing?
The numbers are small but researchers say a drop in obesity among kids could be the start of something big. The numbers range from a 13% decrease in Mississippi to a 1% decrease in California.
Researchers are seeing the trend in big cities and small towns, saying decisions by policy makers in cities and schools over the past several years is starting to have an impact on what kids are eating.
Changes in school lunch menus, reducing fatty foods, sugary drinks and adding more whole grains, fruits and vegetables.
There's also been a push to change what kids eat outside of school, for example parents and after school programs are also focusing on snacking.
