Obama tries taking credit for fake reduction in childhood obesity?

This is a ridiculous report that is probably intended to validate Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” nannying.

The CDC reported today:

The prevalence of obesity declined slightly among low-income preschoolers in 19 of 43 states and territories during 2008–2011.

Click for the study. Check out Table 2. There are no meaningful trends.

One response to “Obama tries taking credit for fake reduction in childhood obesity?

  1. On a subject like obesity, four points do not a trend make, or so I would say. And the 2008-2011 values differed by a very small amount — the largest I saw was 0.7%. It’s also significant that the study was among low-income children and is not ethnically representative of US children in the age cohort.
