The National Governor's Association is raising awareness of the urgent
need for Americans of all ages to live healthier, more active lifestyles.
More than half of Utah's adults are overweight or obese, and one out of
four children are overweight or at risk of becoming overweight. Utah is
taking steps to make the healthy choice the easy choice at home, school,
work and play.
