As ways to combat child obesity, state Rep. Addia Wuchner proposed a series of measures on Tuesday, including a requirement for the state to issue exercise and nutrition standards for child care centers.

Wuchner pre-filed four pieces of legislation for the 2011 General Assembly related to the issue. Here’s an explanation of her proposals from an interview on Tuesday’s edition of Pure Politics.

Child obesity has been a focus of the federal government lately as well. Congress last week passed a $4.5 billion bill that allowed for more healthy lunches and dinners to be served at schools for children.
