CORVALLIS, Ore.-- A study out of Oregon State University shows many rural children who don't have enough food to eat, aren't getting enough physical activity.
In a sample study of families, researchers found 40% were at risk of food insecurity.
They say those families also struggled to find ways for their kids to be active outside of school.
According to researchers, long bus rides made it tougher for parents to get their kids to before and after school activities.
