WOBURN, Mass., Feb. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- There is a crisis in America. Our children are eating poorly, not getting enough exercise and spending too much time on electronics. There are 15 million children that are obese, 30 million children that don't exercise at least an hour a day and 50 million children that spend 7 hours a day on electronics. While there are plenty of temporary fixes and as many schools adopt wellness programs to exercise more and to eat better the statistics worsen every year.
