Do you have friends with children who are extremely overweight? I’m not talking about cute chubby babies, but rather the kiddos who indulge in significant amounts of sugary foods and drinks.
Young children don’t understand what a poor diet does to their system and how it will affect their long term health. Kids rely on parents to give them proper nutrition guidance. I understand some cultures view providing kids with sugar and indulgent foods as a sign of affluence. That being said, with a projection of 1 in 3 Americans having diabetes by 2050, when does intelligence prevail?
My question is, would you say anything to those parents who support poor nutrition with their kids? Do you believe providing mainly fatty and sugary food to a kiddo is a form of child abuse?
