Santa Cruz County Initiative Targets Childhood Obesity
A Santa Cruz County collaborative has launched a new campaign, called 52-10, to target childhood obesity. The program, based on research and developed in Maine, encourages parents and children to eat better and exercise more. About 31% of children in Santa Cruz County are overweight, compared with 17% nationwide.
