A UC Davis study has found that the rise in childhood obesity rates in California is slowing, which researchers think may be the outcome of improved nutrition and physical fitness programs in the state’s public schools.

In their February report, “Obesity and Physical Fitness in California School Children,” published in the American Heart Journal, the researchers found that between 2003 and 2008, the rate increased by a mere 0.33 percent per year among the California students in their study.
