Healthy choices by Wisconsin representative

Wisconsin Congressman Ron Kind yesterday introduced the Healthy CHOICES Act of 2012. It is a multi-faceted approach to fighting obesity, both in children and adults. 

The act has five areas of impact: Prevention and Treatment; Improving Access for Physical Activity; Improving Access to National Information and Healthy Foods; Realigning Transportation to Promote Healthy Lifestyles; and Research Tools. 

The Campaign to End Obesity Action Fund whcih advocates for changes in federal policy that will enable more Americans to eat healthy and be active, as well as those that provide appropriate medical treatment for patients, applaud the measure.
