ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Childhood obesity is a major concern both across the country and here in the Stateline, and today local students got to hear about some of the solutions from Miss Illinois herself.
Megan Ervin stopped by St. Rita's school this morning. She and a nutritionist from SwedishAmerican talked to the kids about the ways fat effects our body and its relationship to more serious problems down the road, like heart disease and type two diabetes.
Ervin also stressed the importance of making sure the kids get active.
