YouthHealth's H.E.A.L.T.H.E.E. Foundation Mission Statement

The mission of YouthHealth's H.E.A.L.T.H.E.E. Foundation is to assist parents and care givers in developing and raising healthy youth into responsible adults. We will accomplish this by helping educate adolescent lives through healthy eating and exercise. Thus, we derive our name, H.E.A.L.T.H.E.E. Foundation.

Between 5-25 percent of children and teenagers in the United States are obese (Dietz, 1983). As with adults, the prevalence of obesity in the young varies by ethnic group. It is estimated that 5-7 percent of White and Black children are obese, while 12 percent of Hispanic boys and 19 percent of Hispanic girls are obese (Office of Maternal and Child Health, 1989).

Some data indicate that obesity among children is on the increase. The second National Children and Youth Fitness Study found 6-9 year olds to have thicker skinfolds than their counterparts in the 1960s (Ross & Pate, 1987). During the same period, others documented a 54 percent increase in the prevalence of obesity among 6-11 year olds (Gortmaker, Dietz, Sobol, & Wehler, 1987).
