The purpose of Children Obesity Foundation Inc. (COF), the nonprofit 501(C)(3), is to be the most current and effective national health education resource that helps children, their families and communities to address all factors that lead to obesity and the development of obesity-related health issues, such as, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, pulmonary and joint disorders, high cholesterol and low self-esteem. One out of every three young people is overweight and the number of overweight and obese children is increasing at an alarming rate. Obesity is now becoming the single biggest and totally preventable health issue that drives up the cost of health care.
The mission of Children Obesity Foundation is to provide assistance to the local communities, children, parents, teachers and healthcare professionals on how to prevent and treat childhood obesity proactively by implementing healthy living skills through nutritional education, physical activity classes, empowerment programming, books, videos, films and lay foundation for healthy behaviors that will reduce obesity risk and promote health over the course of a lifetime.
The focus on eradicating childhood obesity is critically important and for every dollar invested in prevention of obesity, the benefits are many – from reduced health care costs to the emergence of a healthy generation of American children.
The focus on eradicating childhood obesity is critically important and for every dollar invested in prevention of obesity, the benefits are many – from reduced health care costs to the emergence of a healthy generation of American children. We have created various programs that will give our kids and their parents education and practical tools to transform their unhealthy lifestyle habits and teach them how their body responds differently to the new way they start to think and behave around eating food and exercising.

Obesity rates have soared over the past four decades. Today, more than 23 million children - nearly a third - are overweight or obese. We can do better for our children! If we fail to reverse the childhood obesity epidemic, we’re in danger of raising the first generation of American children who may live sicker and die younger than the generation before them. Preventing obesity during childhood is critical becuse habits formed during youth often last well into adulthood. Take action and help power the movement to prevent childhood obesity.
In order to solve the childhood obesity crisis, Children Obesity Foundation (COF) must harness the resources, expertise and most importantly the free-market creativity that drives this nation. To be sure, the public sector has an important role to play – as do parents and kids – but their involvement alone is not enough to succeed we will also get the health sector involved, such as your primary physician. Children Obesity Foundation works with the private sector to create meaningful commitments and ensures that when those commitments are made that credit is given where credit is due.
The goal is to maximize the potential of the private sector to achieve success. We want the private sector with us because, quite simply, we will not succeed without them.
We love our customers, so feel free to visit during normal business hours.
