Healthy Food and Beverage Guidelines

The percent of Americans—both children and adults—who are overweight or obese is staggering. Roughly two-thirds of adults are overweight and 32 percent of children and adolescents. Obesity is linked to serious health consequences such as heart disease, diabetes, certain cancers, and more. In recognition of this problem, California 4-H is committed to educating 4-H youth and their families about healthy habits and encouraging healthy options at 4-H events and activities.
