It's kind of confusing. We worry about the childhood obesity epidemic, yet we're told that we need to embrace morbid obesity in adults as a good thing.
I'm not one to fat shame anyone. I have heavy friends and relatives and nearly all of them want to be thinner and healthier. And the ones who don't, that's fine with me. I love them no matter what.
I will say I don't like the idea of heavy adults "normalizing" being unhealthy to young kids. I want my kids to have long, healthy lives and being twice the weight they should be isn't a part of that equation for anyone.
Half of all states monitor kid's BMI and some of them report their findings to parents.
