Somerville, A Town Committed to Tackle Obesity Among Kids

arathons.

The results seem modest, but are nevertheless meaningful.

After eight months the height and weight of nearly 400 first, second and third graders were measured and the data were compared with those of children the same age from two nearby towns.

On average the kids of Somerville gained about one pound less than the children in the other towns. Economos said it was reasonable to expect weight gain because the children are all growing rapidly.

And the programme continues to expand. The town council now has decided it could replace some of the city cars with bicycles.

"There has really been a mindset that has changed toward active living, eating smart, playing hard," Curtatone said.
