Walking paths reduce rate of obesity in chlldren

by on 09/05/2003

This study reports the relationship between how much children walk, in the U.S., Australia, and Sweden, and their respective rates of obesity. It should be one of those duh items. Also duh, is that children walk more when there are dedicated walking paths. According to the study, children walk the most in Sweden, the least in the United States.

Edmonds, aside from the hills, is a pretty good walking town, but it lacks places that attract children. For children old enough to wander on their own, where, aside from the library, is there to go?
