Obesity & Technology

There have been several devices that come out to aid in the stop of childhood obesity. One of the major ones is the Wii Fit, which combines video games (which all children love) and physical activity. For example, in a race, the person must actually run in place to get the person to move on the screen. The Wii Fit also comes with a scale and monitors your activity. Apps for the iPhone and other smart phones for nutrition, calorie counting, motivational sayings, etc. you name it and the chances of it being available are likely.  Parents play a large role in monitoring their children’s activities. None of these technologies that can help the obesity issue will work if the parent’s are not involved.
