For Women Who Want The Ballerific Life!
I think a lot of it has to do with parents having to work their a**** off to make ends meet, so we rely on fast food and packaged products. My son is skinny as a bean pole and eats like a grown man, and people look at me crazy like I don't feed him. Mind you, I was also naturally skinny and his dad is a bean pole himself. Could be genetics. There are so many factors that go into a children's weight and it's so much bigger than just a home cooked meal. I do agree kids have got to go outside and play more...but dang, these days with all these sickos out there, makes it hard for a parent to let their child out of their sight.
I know exactly what you mean. My "little" cousin weighed 150 at age 6. She's now 7 and has gotten heavier. She has a LOT of health problems. She can barely walk up the stairs w/o getting winded. Her parents are obese as well. I dont think affordable healthy food is the problem in her case. Her mom gets hundreds of dollars in food stamps a month and their fridge and pantry are packed with junk. Not a fruit or veggie in sight. It really hurts to see her eat like she does and with her health issues. I try to help but she's just a kid. She doesn't know any better. It's the parents' fault. I'm thisclose to anonymously calling CPS on them. They are killing her
Was her mom big? Sometime they can't help it... my son is normal size but he won't eat veggies or fruit even if I beat him..which I won't do but sometime u can't force ppl to do what u want.. child or not
