Has anyone ever asked why these children are so overweight and how they got that way in the first place? Is this across the board or are these children from certain economic groups? And if they are what is being done to change that?
The biggest culprit is not so much the content of the food they eat but how much of it and how much exercise these children get each day including at school. No food is bad for you unless you either eat too much or you have allergies to it. If the problem is overeating of certain foods then the blame has to be put at the hands of the parents who either caused it or allowed it.
