Meanwhile the percentage of overweight children has more than doubled in the last 30 years.
That translates to four-point-seven million children who are heavier than they should be.
And heavy children tend to become heavy adults-- at an increased risk for a number of diseases.
But experts say it's a bad idea to put kids on diets-- that can interfere with their normal growth.
Instead, the answer is more activity.
