According to figures in the recently released Wall Street Journal Online/Harris Interactive® Health-Care Poll, 84% of adults now think childhood obesity is a “major problem” in the U.S. Also, 83% of those surveyed thought that public schools should do more to limit student access to unhealthy food and snacks, and a large number also thought that children are becoming obese because adults are neglecting the eating habits of children. Highlights from the poll are posted by Harris Interactive. (Poll highlights require Adobe Acrobat Reader.)
