    They must have an AWFUL LOT of BAKE SALES to be causing obesity in children. Maybe they ought to get to P.E. Make em run and do calisthenics for an hour every day. Burn that fat off of them. They might also look at their school lunch menu. Then of course this is the parents job NOT the schools.
