You should have probably kept reading.

Other reports on young children (7,8)* have used data from CDC's Pediatric Nutrition Surveillance System (PedNSS); one report showed that among 44 states/territories during 20032008 nine showed a significant decline in obesity, 24 showed significant increases, and 11 showed no statistically significant change (7).

The article you posted USES the report as a source I told you about.

So this means 1 of 2 things. 1. The FLOTUS is taking credit for something she had nothing to do with, and as we know the Obamas NEVER do that.

Or 2. Most of the decrease occurred before the first lady decided to micromanage what school children eat in federally funded meal programs.

Again, you are welcome.
