The information is out there, but I don’t think parents understand or want to face the consequences their children will be facing due to obesity. I really hope Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution will scare some parents into doing what is right to protect the health of their children.
While I do believe parents want the best for their children and need to be educated to realize what they have been doing wrong, I agree with Jamie. Children are often given the blame for being overweight. I like Jamie’s term,”That is Rubbish”.
The truth is children aren’t going to the store and purchasing the co co puffs and fatty foods, the parents are.
If you haven’t, go back to the link and watch the videos. Pay special attention to the 16 year old that was given 6 to 7 months to live, because what her lifestyle (the lifestyle her parents taught her) has done to her liver. There are many children out their that will be dieing way to young. This is not a legacy anyone of us should want to leave behind. Pass the link on to everyone you know, so they can share it with their friends.
