A weighty is­sue for the par­ents

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - Letters -

In re­sponse to child­hood obe­sity, there are only two peo­ple re­spon­si­ble for chil­dren be­ing over­weight — the par­ents (“Why kids can’t jump”, 9/2).

It’s time to stop blam­ing food com­pa­nies, fast-food places, etc. I have never seen a child drive a car into a fast-food out­let! Stressed out moth­ers, please. Try wash­ing nap­pies, walk­ing chil­dren to school, then catch­ing a bus to work. And guess what? I wasn’t stressed. And try say­ing no to your chil­dren now and then.
