This is my first question and as many know obesity is a very dear subject of mine considering I used to be obese myself. I would like to get opinions on this topic. There has been an abundance of new material posted regarding this topic. Let me know your thoughts!
Fuel the Movement,
Why punish the child? I think it’s a matter of educating the parents. We have become a fast food working world, very few are paying attention to what’s going in their own bodies let alone their childs. Parents are taking the easy way out by going to fast food “restaurants”, buying packaged foods, not getting involved in the school menu choices. On the other hand I have noticed at many clothing store “Plus Juniors” sections which feeds right into it. Two income families are working forty hours a week, are overwhelmed in this economy and can’t even think about exercise?!
Until there is a ban on processed foods (which will never happen) or a huge protest to eating crap, this will continue. Until we hit a crisis, nothing will happen even though I feel we have hit it.
Children learn what they see.
