Three Chicago organizations in the fight against childhood obesity

In ourJanuary issue, we looked at the alarming rise in childhood obesity. Now, in our “Learning to Live Healthy” web series, we’re shining a spotlight on three Chicago organizations doing something about it.

On Mondays in April, we’ll be profiling a city charter school where the kids do yoga, a north suburban nonprofit teaching cooking skills for busy families, and an urban farm that is springing up in the shadow of one of the nation’s worst public housing projects. Check back Mondays starting April 5.
