It is up to every parent to become educated on the hazards of fatty foods. In a BBC case study of five people who were overweight as kids, the news agency asked them what caused them to become obese. One adult who was an obese kid said parents too often force the last crumb off of a plate down their child’s throat. These parents say they don’t want to waste the food.But the problem gets worse for the obese children. The health risks for the young ones is worse than what was anticipated. While many people blame the parents of obese children for causing the kids to be overweight, experts in the field say it isn’t their fault. The BBC New Magazine article “Childhood Obesity: 10 of Your Stories,” reported: “Causes range from a lack of education about food, limited cooking skills and limited money to buy healthier food to longer working hours and marketing campaigns for junk food aimed at kids,” (par.3).

I was dragged screaming across the room and locked into the garden room, denied any pudding and isolated from my family. I was three years old,” (par. 5).

Now, she says she is in the habit of forcing down a huge portion and eating to the point where she feels sick. She is still overweight at age 43.

When she was 18 years old, she was severely overweight, but after she moved out of her home and got married, she was able to drop her weight in half, approximately. “Motivation overcame my programming,” (par. 6).The problem looks to be getting worse, according to one man who said he was considered fat by his peers.

He said he blames his mother who he suspects was attempting to compensate for the “wartime and rationing shortages.” He became a diabetic at age 56 and he believes overdosing on sugar as a child was the cause.
