National 'got milk?' Milk Mustache Campaign Recognizes 10 Pediatricians

Making Great Strides for Child Health and Wellness

WASHINGTON, Oct. 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With the percentage of overweight American children and teens having tripled in the last two decades, the National "got milk?" Milk Mustache Campaign is recognizing 10 pediatricians across the nation who are going above and beyond to take the nation's childhood obesity crisis into their own hands.

Since 1991, the American Academy of Pediatrics' CATCH (Community Access to Child Health) program has honored pediatricians who think outside the box when it comes to child health. This year, in partnership with the National "got milk?" Milk Mustache Campaign, 10 winners will each receive a $10,000 grant to fund innovative community programs aimed at child nutrition or obesity prevention.

From Georgia to California, each of the 10 CATCH grant winners created innovative programs addressing childhood obesity and nutrition. Programs include a teen e-nutrition site giving at-risk teens access to pediatricians and dietitians using their preferred mode of communication, a 10-week CHARM School (Choosing Healthy and Rewarding Meals) that will combine the expertise of a nutritionist, an image consultant and a pediatrician to develop healthy eating habits and life skills among urban high school students, and a PE 4 Me Jr. class in California, introducing young children to physical activity and creating healthy habits they can maintain through their childhood and into their adult years.
