Nutrition can be easily overlooked during a holiday best known for its abundance of candy and sugary treats. That is a shame, since about 1 in 5 school-aged children are obese, according to the CDC. This Halloween, consider being the one house on the block that offers healthy trick-or-treat alternatives.
You may not consider childhood obesity to be an issue that affects your company, but it may have a larger impact than you think. Over 30% of American children today are classified as overweight or obese. You likely have many employees with children, and obesity among that dependent group could be costing your company a lot of money.
