San Marcos restaurants take on childhood obesity

SAN MARCOS, Texas (KXAN) — The fight to end childhood obesity in our country is far from over, and one Central Texas city in particular has been losing the battle.

Researchers at Texas State University say children in San Marcos have higher rates of being overweight or obese than the rest of the state and nation.

“I think it’s probably the most important health issue in our nation,” said Sylvia Crixell, Professor of Nutrition at Texas State. “It starts with pregnancy or the health of the mom, but children have from the time of birth, the option of living a healthy life or not.”
