gner Jewish Community Center for putting together a creative program and Dannon for supporting our community efforts to keep our children fit and healthy."

"With recent statistics showing that obesity is one of the top public health challenges facing Utah and the nation as a whole, teaching young people about proper nutrition and exercise early in life is key to helping them sustain good health into adulthood," said Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz.

As a result of Dannon's support, the Next Generation Nutrition Grant-funded programs have reached more than 1,100 children in Salt Lake County during the last three years and have garnered positive results. Among participants in the 2006 grant recipient program, the 4-H TRY (Teens Reaching Youth) Nutrition Program reported a 27% increase in those who ate three to four fruit servings daily and an eight-minute average increase in participation in sports.

The alarming epidemic of obesity among children and adolescents throughout the nation is jeopardizing the future health of our youth. In 2008, 21.5% of Utah elementary school students were at an unhealthy weight according to the Utah Department of Health.

"By educating children at an early age on good eating and exercise habits, programs like Fun, Fit & Healthy! are helping to change unhealthy habits that have become so common," said Gayle Binney, Dannon's corporate responsibility manager. "The I.J. & Jeanne Wagner Jewish Community Center is building a base for healthy behaviors that will stay with these children and their families for years to come, and Dannon is proud to contribute to its efforts."

Today's grant ceremony, held at Dannon's plant in West Jordan, Utah, was attended by West Jordan Mayor David Newton; Jennifer Scott, district director for Rep. Jason Chaffetz; Ron Dean, Central and Eastern Utah director for Sen. Orin Hatch; and Michael Su
