To Fight Youth Obesity

  • According to the Center for Disease Control Childhood obesity has more than tripled in the past 30 years.

  • The percentage of children aged 6–11 years in the United States who were obese increased from 7% in 1980 to nearly 20% in 2008.

  • Similarly, the percentage of adolescents aged 12–19 years who were obese increased from 5% to 18%

  • Health Effects of Childhood Obesity
    Childhood obesity has both immediate and long-term effects on health and well-being.

    Immediate health effects:

  • Obese youth are more likely to have risk factors for cardiovascular disease, such as high cholesterol or high blood pressure. In a population-based sample of 5- to 17-year-olds, 70% of obese youth had at least one risk factor for cardiovascular disease.

  • Obese adolescents are more likely to have prediabetes, a condition in which blood glucose levels indicate a high risk for development of diabetes.

  • ATHF partners obese youth with our Pro At Your Door Accountabilty Partners to encourage better lifestyle choices to lead healthier lives.

How do we Taylor Youth?

What is to be done? 
2 hours a week, youth will be accompanied by their pro to engage in 1 hour of physical fitness and an half hour of life enrichment skills conversation to help the youth adjust to the change in their physical appearance to coincide with the mental changes they’ll undergo.

Helping Parents Fight The Disease

Eating Fruits + Vegetable = A Healthier Diet

Eating Non-Processed Foods = Higher Food Cost

ATHF understands that the parents of the youth we serve face extreme educational and financial deficits which prevent them from being able to afford higher food cost associated with a healthy diet.

We believe our idea is unique and innovative because no obesity programs provide parents with easy to understand work shops on how to:

  • Understand reading process food labels for nutritional facts and value

  • Partner youth 1-on-1 with a positive role model that travels to the kids home to get them up off the couch and out the door being active.
