Obesity rate climbs at alarming rate

Kids in the U.S. may be the first in America's history to live shorter lives than their parents.

Much of that is tied to obesity.      

New reports have been coming out this week about the obesity epidemic in the U.S.

About 33% of children are considered obese and that number is only expected to climb.

Experts say parents need to start kids on a healthy path right out of the gate.

That means introducing them to nutritious foods at a young age and making sure they get exercise every day.
