Should Your Kid's School Measure Their BMI?

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.

Do you think that's a good idea? Comment below and check out the article from here.
