Child obesity should be considered a form of child abuse. Poor kids' parents put the kids on a road to ill-health, early death, even lower earnings.

Im really curious to know how the method you use to feed a baby requires commnuity support??? It should really be a personal/private non-broadcasted decision. Yes, we know that breast milk is better, but even with all the right support (???), and everything else, it's not always an option.

Here's a solution: teach your kids NOT to sack out in front of the TV with Cheetos, and a remote all day. That will do wonders for the so called "epidemic".


Not everyone can breastfeed. This type of article is discouraging to those who cannot. Perhaps the guilt trip could be placed on companies, not mothers who are trying their best.
