PROACTIVE KIDS ANNOUNCES STAGGERING IMPROVEMENT IN BMI AND BODY FAT IN OBESE CHILDREN

As National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month comes to a close, ProActive Kids Foundation just published their latest body composition results.

Of 759 program graduates, 73.5% saw a drop in their BMI (Body Mass Index).   BMI uses height and weight measurements to estimate how much body fat a child has to help determine how appropriate a child’s weight is for a certain height and age. The average decrease in BMI was almost ½ of a BMI point.
Also, 549 of 759 kids, or 72.3% of participants, saw a decrease in their Body Fat Percent and 61% decreased their body weight in pounds.
