Get Fit Grand Prairie recognizes July as Youth Health Awareness Month to heighten awareness of obesity in young kids and teens.
Youth have important daily dietary needs to support continued growth and physical development. And just like in adults, increased physical activity has been associated with an increased life expectancy and decreased risk of cardiovascular disease. Physical activity produces overall physical, psychological and social benefits.
