9. Now THAT is a novel idea! Maybe discouraging video games would help too.
Seems like kids are not quite as active as kids used to be. Too much time spent on the Xbox and texting, maybe. Making PE a core part of every curriculum and maybe removing advertising for video games from all kids' programming would be a good start if they are actually serious about lifetime good health habits. I'd also think that it'd be a huge help to our overburdened medical system if HFC use was regulated in our food supply.

Oh! While we are at it, how about fixing the school lunch programs so they quit serving crap to kids?

I dunno, I'm no researcher, so maybe those ideas are just me talking out my butt, but it sure seems like a better alternative than pushing pills on kids...
