    Hey I got it right! I am ridiculously proud of this, as DSD and I have been chatting about being healthy etc, and I am glad I am not being unrealistic with her.

    I am very confident in my own body, but am obese- I am working on it though! I lost 20kg before I got pregnant, and hope to lose more after bub is born (on top of losing the baby weight!).

    I know it's slightly off topic, but this just made me want to cry Those poor kids. It just confirms though that not only is poor diet leading to obesity in young children, but also other serious health issues. I guess the only solution really is more education...

    Oh my gosh, that's horrible!

    I watched the Jamie Oliver special a few weeks ago where he interviewed a dr who said that they have around 7000 type 2 diabetes related amputations per year in the UK. It just boggles the mind that there are people out there who are literally willing to lose a limb rather than change their lifestyle!

    Well to be blunt it will lead to a very early death.

    That's why it's more than time to look into the issue and take drastic measures if we don't want the next generation to have a shorter life expectancy than their parents 😞

    Honestly? Don't. You may think you are helping them but it would be incredibly judgmental and all you would do I expect is alienate them.

    My 2 year old has mini Oreos occasionally. Flame me now!

    I'm pretty sure I read a similar article over here in the uk this week but they were claiming one culprit of tooth decay in small children is....wait for it....

    Raisins! Because they get stuck up inside the teeth and the natural sugar rots the teeth. It's more about practicing dental health at a young age than what they're eating.

    Eta: milk before bed and constant snacking are also big culprits.

    Given the latest comments I suspect it may go south very soon!

    I have to agree. I've seen friends give their kids juice, lollies and biscuits for lunch, but that's their choice to make as a parent. Unless they ask for my opinion or advice I don't offer it.

    I do sometimes share articles on fb and hope that they might read them and make more informed choices though
