Multiple Strategies Needed to Fight Obesity

Battling childhood obesity may require more than one approach.

That's according to a new Institute of Medicine report out of USA Today.

The report found there's no single solution to the problem.

Instead, it recommends children get 60 minutes of physical activity a day at school, neighborhoods develop more parks and trails and fast-food restaurants offer healthier options for kids.

Researchers say communities, schools, jobs and health care providers must work together to combat the problem.
