The Mollen Foundation is working to prevent childhood obesity. The Mollen Foundation empowers, encourages, and motivates children to live a healthy lifestyle. Experienced medical and educational professional partner with community leaders and youth educators to give parents and school aged children the right tools to succeed in a healthy lifestyle change. Did you know that childhood obesity has more then tripled in the past 30 years? Right now 1 in 3 children in the country are considered overweight and many are considered obese. These are scary statistics. Working with preschool children I have seen many children in the overweight and even obese category. It is a sad situation for children to be in at such a young age.
