Childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and quadrupled in adolescents in the past 30 years.The percentage of children aged 6–11 years in the United States who were obese increased from 7% in 1980 to nearly 18% in 2012. Similarly, the percentage of adolescents aged 12–19 years who were obese increased from 5% to nearly 21% over the same period. In 2012, more than one third of children and adolescents were overweight or obese.
The U.S. is now in the grips of a full-blown obesity epidemic. More than 35% of U.S. adults are obese. In 2011, the adult obesity rate exceeded 30% in 12 states; 27 more states had adult obesity rates greater than 25%. On its current trajectory, it is estimated that obesity rates for adults could reach or exceed 44% in every state by 2030.
The adult obesity rate so far in 2013 is 27.2%, up from 26.2% in 2012, and is on pace to surpass all annual average obesity rates since Gallup-Healthways began tracking in 2008. If the current trend continues for the next several years, the implications for the health of Americans and the increased burden on the healthcare system could be significant.
