First Lady Michelle Obama's campaign to fight childhood obesity has been a long time coming.

It's been a losing battle for more than 50 years since the president's council on physical fitness and sports came into prominence in 1956.

The overweight adults of today are the overweight children of yesteryear. Warnings went out at that time but were ignored, put on the back burner and forgotten.

The junk food, fast food and carbonated drink markets have inundated TV, newspapers, magazines and billboards with their products for many years. The fast food and junk food craze was appealing to the public. It was the easy out and it was the easy way to go.

Parents have to be held responsible for allowing junk food into their lives and allowing the sedentary lifestyle of their children.

Take heed, parents, and children of the obesity epidemic. Junk the junk food.
