Pediatric experts warn that the path to adult obesity can begin in toddler-hood and recommend at least an hour a day of active play for 3- and 4-year-olds, along with a diet that includes five fruits and vegetables. Dr. Stephen Daniels, professor of pediatrics and environmental health at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center and lead author of a statement published in Circulation, the journal of the American Heart Association, noted that toddler-hood is, "a time when dietary patterns may become more like those of adults, and also when many children develop physical activity patterns both good and bad."
According to the American Heart Association, childhood obesity has become such a public health threat that it could reverse the gains in cardiovascular disease and death made in the last 50 years.
