Your Kid is Still Fat

By BlueButterfly     Jan 30, 2007 in Health
Australia, like the US, is suffering from an epidemic of obesity. Why? Blame the parents.
Some of you may remember the groundbreaking article, Yeah Your Kid is Fat. Well, I've decided to do it again.
Most parents believe that their kids are a healthy, normal weight even when they are overweight or obese. Parents of 5 to 6 years olds are the most inaccurate judges of their childrens' weight. Parents of 10 to 12 year olds were also bad.
Almost 50% of people are now considered obese. Overweight parents are most likely to be blind to the fact that they are killing their kids, nevermind setting a bad example and sharing too many Twinkies.
