Romeo Miller(R),20, who has been named the National Spokesperson for non-profit organization It’s Time Kids, was joined by his dad Percy “Master P” Miller and his sister Cymphonique,13, on a recent Healthy Lifestyle tour.
“We believe it is necessary to educate children about the importance of eating right, education and exercise. As a unit, we feel the time is now to do this; we truly support what the First Lady is doing with her platform of helping to fight obesity. This is just our way of doing our part,” says Master P.
“According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 67 percent of adults are overweight or obese and the epidemic is being spread to our younger generation. In 2001, the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry estimated that between 16 and 33 percent of children and adolescents were obese. We have to address this as a country and we will continue this mission with a national tour.”
