Yes, I would say so. I also wrote about child obesity and the problems related to it in this article. Children who grow up overweight, with poor eating habits and no nutritional education or understanding, have no chance when they grow up. It’s our responsibility as adults and parents/aunties/uncles/grandparents/teachers/god parents/etc to set standars, be good role models and give the kids around us a chance to grow up to be healthy and active young adults.
I would go as far as calling it child abuse if you’re feeding your kids crap you call food and they turn into obese kids with diabetes and other health and diet related illnesses before they are even old enough to make their own decisions or to know better.
What’s your opinion on this matter?
