In this day of medical marvels, we as yet have no cure for obesity, but we do have the ability to make choices. America will have to choose nutrition over revenues and meal planning over instant gratification. Every community and every family will have to choose to ensure that children receive the reassurance and support they need to make lifelong choices for a happy, healthier life. The Center Helping Obesity In Children End Successfully, Inc. (C.H.O.I.C.E.S.) is eager to embrace this challenge. There are an estimated ten million obese and overweight American kids who experience the ongoing frustrations associated with excessive weight and often do not know where to turn. C.H.O.I.C.E.S., a grassroots organization, was formed in April 2002 to join the fight against the deadly epidemic of childhood obesity. We aim to spread awareness of this critical issue and significantly reduce the presence of childhood obesity in our communities. Our mission is to be a parent and child resource center for clinically diagnosed and at-risk children of obesity. C.H.O.I.C.E.S. has delivered its message of health to more than 125,000 children and adults through cooking classes, workshops, summer camps, and health expos. With the success of our Cooking with C.H.O.I.C.E.S., Camp Divas, Let's Move! DeKalb Back-to-School Expo programs and now our new Community Teaching Kitchen, we will increase our footprint and help more Atlanta community families tackle childhood obesity and lead healthier lives.
