An 8min Childhood Obesity documentary by ABC news with Meredith Viera talks about how parents need to be aware of, educated about and engaged with what's going on with their kids. The video sheds some light on the obstacles that parents, as well was their kids face and how to combat them. It also talks about what will happen, if we don't do anything as a society to solve these problems.
Screenshots that highlight the video, below.
