Obesity researchers looked at trends from 2003-2012 and have found there's been a 43% drop in obesity rates amongst US children aged 2 to 5. Researchers theorize that increased breastfeeding trends and reduced consumption of sugary beverages are primary reasons. Unfortunately these findings are the lone improvement in obesity trends. Researchers found that obesity rates for infants, children 2-19 and adults remain unchanged over the past 9 years.
