It's a proceedure that asses 10 behaviors and help kids set goals for developing better habits when it comes to eating and exercise. It's called the Youth Physical Activity and Nutrition Assessment Form. An estimated 33 percent of Nebraska K-though-12 students were over weight or obese in 2003. That's according to the most recent figures available from the state Department of Health and Human Services. DHHS and the Department of Pediatrics at Creighton University School are jointly sponsoring training sessions across the states to educate health care providers about the form other tools to promote healthy weight in children. The first training session was held yesterday (Thursday) in Omaha. Additional sessions will be held November 14th at Good Samaritan Conference Center in Kearney, and Nov.15th at the Lincoln Medical Education Partnership.
