If you let your already overweight/obese 7 yr old eat 4 slices of pizza and a mountain dew for breakfast, then i'm happy to tell you, you are a bad mother. So what he ate a banana, oya clap for yourself. You are still a bad parent. I can understand if he has been so sick they are trying to get him to eat anything, but no, he has asthma.
I don't think little kids should be fat especially since they don't buy the food. You should be able to control what goes in your kids mouths. If you don't buy it, usually they won't eat it. What is cute about a kid with oversized cheeks at 7? *rolls eyes*
I really don't enjoy peds for many reasons.
My initial post was my pure unadulterated thoughts. I realize that it could be offensive to some so let me try to be politically correct and clarify a bit. This post is not necessarily referring to chubby kids or parents of chubby kids. Not everyone is meant to be slim/skinny and i understand that. I am talking to parents of overweight/obese kids who make no effort to promote healthy eating in their kids. I think that you are setting that child up for lot of future health problems when you continue to feed them crap. A LOT of health problems are linked to obesity
Kids will eat what is available to them. My nephew and niece at one time claimed that didn't/couldn't/wouldn't drink water. That could only fly because they had juice, soda and what not available to them. If they only had water at home, would they have mouth to say they don't drink water? If you as an adult is obese, then that's fine. You are making that choice to keep eating what you are eating to remain that way. You will be dealing with the consequences sooner or later, but at least make an effort to get your kids to eat better. You owe it to them.
4 slices of pizza and mountain dew for breakfast will never be okay in my book.
