The study found that the households with the higher levels of education between 2007-2010 had lower rates of obesity in girls and boys between 2 and 19 years old. If the head of the household had less than a high school education the obesity level in their children averaged 24 percent in boys and 22 percent in girls. The obesity rate drops dramatically when the head of the household had a bachelor’s degree or higher – the obesity rate was 11 percent for boys and 7 percent for females.
