Women With Focus Help Fight Childhood Obesity

March 18, 2009 – Over the past ten years, Women With Focus Inc. together with the Kids Slim Down Club have been assisting children who are obese to lose weight safely. Studies have shown that obesity in children has been linked to a greater risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, breathing problems and depression. Register children ages 6 to 13, attend free exercise classes and walk for health on St Thomas, St. Croix and St. John. The war on childhood obesity can be won.
