take the surgeon general's pledge

I pledge to:

  • Be a role model by making healthy choices for myself.
  • Help children be physically active through everyday play and participation in sports.
  • Support children's healthy eating habits.

A healthy future is our gift to our children.

We estimate 1 in 6 U.S. children between 2 and 19 is overweight
, a risk factor for serious health consequences including asthma, diabetes and heart disease.

You can help solve this serious – and growing – health problem. Join us on the 80th annual Child Health Day, October 6, 2008, and help children Eat Healthy and Be Active for a Healthy Future!
