    Try checking out the information on some of these links:

    http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/obesity.html - a variety of links to information about obesity

    http://www.obesity.org/ - The American Obesity Organization

    http://www.emedicine.com/med/topic1653.htm - Obesity

    To my way of thinking a handout would either focus on ways to prevent obesity or warning of the complications of obesity.

    I am currently working as a Nutritionist for a school system, I have done several surveys in the area of obesity. In the past 5 years, I have seen more and more obese children. Many of these children willl continue to grow obese, unless they start doing exercising and eating healthier.
    You can link obesity of high blood pressure and diabetes which is so common today.

    Good luck to you!
