Chances are that if a parent has one "chubby" child, all of their children are chubby. If children are obese, it is most likely the fault of enabling parents. That is what I've seen in most homes. I'm not one to mince words; I think there is value in being blunt and to the point.

Its not real, chubby families are a figment and assumption and not true. Chubby is poverty dependent families and parents who don't know how to cook. They should be going to the parents and teach them how to cook and leave the children alone. They're suffering more from peer bullying, the last thing chubby needs is a nutritionist and exorcise freak that bullies chubby to do things they cannot do with the excess weight.

Technology a a huge part of the problem, it promotes children not to pursue any interest that are not technology related. Children are being taught if you have any problems then they can rely on technology to fix it, and we all know how wrong that is. Technology can staple stomachs, provide pills, buy a meal on credit without money. Kids can take any food stamp cards to the stores and buy junk food without parents, no identification or age limit restrictions of use. Stores don't care who uses food stamps, its their profits.

The last things these kids need are harassament by the schools. Its simple instincts 101 that adults should be in control of a childs diet, and hunger limits diet.
