Texas Offers Online Help Against Childhood Obesity

AUSTIN (AP) — Texas has unveiled a website meant to help battle childhood obesity and identify areas of the state where youngsters are most at risk.

Comptroller Susan Combs on Thursday announced as a way to help focus on obesity costs, medical research and health initiatives.

A mapping feature uses fitness and body mass data collected by school districts and reported to the Texas Education Agency to help pinpoint at-risk areas. Combs says also encourages users to offer success stories.

The 2011 Legislature ordered the comptroller’s office to set up a website to compile research information on childhood obesity and provide other assistance.
