"Generation Extra Large reveals the startling truth about the obesity epidemic, and uncovers the cultural and economic causes of childhood obesity. Cash-strapped schools have opened their doors to fast food and soda companies. Many schools are cutting physical education - and even recess - in a misguided attempt to save money and boost standardized test scores. At the same time, the authors report, food and soda lobbies are shaping government policy at our children's expense. At home, traditional family meals have grown rare, and fast food is filling the void. From city neighborhoods that are too dangerous for outside play to the sprawling suburbs where everyone drives everywhere, children face overwhelming obstacles on their path to good health.".
