Following up on today's Washington Insider, I wanted to highlight a piece in the New York Times today that the Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention reported a 43% decline in obesity rates among children ages 2-to-5 years old over the past decade.

According to the report, studies show early childhood obesity can have lifelong effects. Those children are five times as likely to be overweight or obese as adults.

Tying into today's Insider piece, the NYT stated "Children now consume fewer calories from sugary beverages than they did in 1999."
