From the Certified Horsemanship Association -- On February 9, 2010, President Barak Obama established a
Taskforce on Childhood Obesity, whose purpose is to create a national
action plan to address the growing problem of childhood obesity. The
plan will focus on four areas: (1) ensuring access to healthy,
affordable food; (2) increasing physical activity in schools and
communities; (3) providing healthier food in schools; and (4) empowering
parents with information and tools to make good choices for themselves
and their families.
