Nutrition Education: A good idea in Colorado?

Leave a comment

I can think of a myriad of ways to spend taxpayer money, but this way sounds like a great idea. We need more of these kinds of programs. Maybe this helps to explain why Colorado has the lowest obesity rate in the U.S. at 22.6%. On the other hand, West Virginia has the highest rate at 38.1%.  The U.S. obesity rates increased from 26.2% in 2012 to 27.1% in 2013.
